Here is an overview of all the committees within UGA Miracle.
Business Relations works toward raising funds for ugaMiracle through sponsorship and advertising, as well as fostering relationships with local businesses. Meetings will be held weekly for about thirty minutes, and service on this committee will involve going to local businesses as we work toward reaching our financial goal For The Kids!
Community Outreach works with local and Atlanta-area schools to help them fundraise For The Kids! We also plan and host mini Dance Marathons for our participating high schools. Meetings will be held on Wednesdays.
This committee is in charge of inviting Miracle families to the Marathon and keeping in touch with them throughout the year. Family Relations committee members are assigned to a specific family and will be their guide at the Marathon. Family Relations committee is also in charge of the Wall of Hope, Family Days and the Family Corner. Our committee meets once a week, with various other required events.
Members of the Finance Committee are responsible for counting and collecting monetary donations from both Letter Writing Campaigns and business sponsorships. Meetings will be held at the discretion of the Finance Director and will typically be every other week, but will become more frequent as Dance Marathon approaches. During the Dance Marathon members will be asked to rotate during the day to aid the Finance Director. Accounting and Finance majors are encouraged to apply, though the committee is open to all majors.
This committee's primary goal is to bring in financial support directly impacting ugaMiracle’s end of year total. We will be hosting many fundraising events such as canning, coliseum concessions, percentage nights, and many more fun, creative ways to raise money FOR THE KIDS! Meetings will be held every other week on Mondays from 7:30-8:30.
Hospital Relations helps to plan, organize, and run hospital visits and themed activities for hospitalized children at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. We will meet once a week on Wednesday nights.
The Media committee meets roughly once a week to create print materials for ugaMiracle. Our biggest project is the Dance Marathon Magazine, given to every participant at the marathon. There will also be some opportunities to help with digital media projects throughout the year. If you are a strong writer, photographer or designer, this is the committee for you! Photoshop or InDesign skills are a plus, but not necessary.
Morale committee is charged with leading ugaMiracle’s participants in spirit & excitement throughout the year, especially at our 24-hour Dance Marathon! Morale has a large part in planning the internal structure of Dance Marathon including Theme Hours, Color Group Wars, and Mail Call, as well as teaching the famous ugaMiracle dance! Outside of the Marathon, Morale is a yearlong committee whose responsibilities extend to developing relations with team members, continuously building the morale of our organization in meetings and special events, and just having fun!
