Part of the Miracle Network Dance Marathon Program since 2013, Davis Dance Marathon has helped sick and injured kids like Chanell Roberts receive the best care available. In 2014, Chanell – age 12 at the time – suffered a stroke after being hit in the head with a football. For a while, it was hard for her to walk. Thanks to the work and dedication of the staff at the UC Davis Children’s Hospital, she made a full recovery. She told her story to the dancers at the Davis Dance Marathon and even performed a solo dance routine for everyone to enjoy!.

Panda Express, a Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals partner, generously provided students food during their event:
