Dance Marathon is a 24 hour event completely organized by students at the University of Georgia® in the philanthropy UGA® Miracle. Our event was originally created to honor our Miracle families and celebrate a year long effort of fundraising by UGA® Miracle for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. Twenty-three years later, Dance Marathon has turned into a family friendly, community wide event. With local bands and performers as well as local food and a variety of activities, Dance Marathon has entertainment for all ages during the entire 24 hours.
We are excited to invite everyone out to this year's UGA® Miracle Braves Game! Braves for the Brave 2019 will be Sunday, September 22rd at 1:15 PM against the San Francisco Giants. This will be a great chance to meet Miracle families, alumni, and other new committee members! It is going to be a great time as we root on the Braves!

We are so overjoyed to be hosting our 24th Annual Classic City Tour of Homes, benefiting UGA Miracle, again this year! This event is so special as our sororities and some fraternities open their homes, displaying their holiday decor, with local vendors. This is the only time of the year that these historic antebellum Athens homes are open to the public, and our sororities and fraternities take great pride in making their homes beautiful and welcoming for the Athens community, surrounding communities, high school students, and future UGA Dawgs and their families and friends to come enjoy. UGA Miracle is the official Greek Life philanthropy at the University of Georgia and this partnership is so special to us, so we cannot wait to include you all in this incredible event, all benefiting Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. All proceeds of this event go to provide hope, love, and help in the making of miracles in our hospital during this holiday season. We so look forward to seeing you all on December 2nd!
When you arrive at the event, tickets are picked up at the sorority houses. You will be given a wristband - this will serve as your ticket, so wear it throughout the event. Once you have your wristband, you can start at whatever house you would like!
PARKING: Please park at the Tate Student Center Deck or at the Varsity on Milledge. If you park at Tate, we will have a special bus running from the bus stop at Tate (across from the stadium gates) to take you to Milledge. If you park at the Varsity, you can catch an Athens Transit bus or walk.
