Frequently Asked Questions

We assume you'll have some questions, so we compiled some of our most
commonly asked questions as a resource for you.


Have a question that isn't answered here? Contact info@floridamiracle.org
and we'll be sure to find the answer for you!

Registration

  1. How do I register?
    Our registration link for the 2017-2018 year is coming soon! When available, you will be able to register as an individual or as part of a team. If you join as an individual, you will be placed on a team during the event.
  2. What's the difference between individual and team registrations?
    Not much, to be honest. Everyone will have the same great time during the 8 hour event. But to answer your question, some dancers will register as an individual and inspire their friends and family to support them on their mission to raise funds. Others, usually companies and organizations, will use the event as a team building tool and will work together to achieve their fundraising goals. At the end of the day, we're all on the same team "for the kids" right?
  3. Is there a maximum number of dancers a team can have?
    The more the merrier! We encourage you to invite all of your friends and co-workers to join your team!


Event Details

  1. Will I be dancing the whole time?
    Dancing is actually just a small part of the event. In fact, Dance Marathons are about much more - inspiring hope, sharing stories of courage and making miracles possible. We will teach a line dance during the event, and celebrate each hour as it passes by dancing together. But the rest of the time, you'll enjoy entertainment and activities, and hear from some of our very own Miracle Families. The most important part is that you stand on your feet, for the kids, the whole time.
  2. Do I need to bring anything with me?
    We should have you covered for pretty much everything. Registered dancers will receive a T-shirt at the event and complimentary food and beverages will be available throughout the day to keep you energized for all 8 hours. We recommend dancers wear comfortable shoes and try to avoid bringing large bags to the event. We will have a small place to store items as needed, but you won't want to miss out on the event by checking items in and out, so consider our next recommendation: Bring a fanny pack! If there is a time and place for fanny packs, this is it! You can keep all your VIP items with you - like your ID, cell phone, sweatbands, neon sunglasses and more! 
  3. Can guests visit me during the event?
    Yes! We encourage you to have family and friends support you for your efforts and will provide more details on how they can register for a floor place closer to the event date.


Fundraising

  1. What are the fundraising requirements?
    Dancers commit to raising a minimum of $100. Whether or not you've ever been a part of a fundraiser, asking for money can seem like an overwhelming task at first, but we'll have some tools (and tips!) for you to use to make it easy. With our resources and your talent, we know you'll not only reach your goal but exceed it!
  2. When is the last day to turn in funds?
    All funds will be due on event day. Additional funds can continue to come in during the event, but the $100 minimum must be met at the time of check-in.
  3. How do I turn in checks and cash?
    Checks and cash may be turned in at check-in. Please ensure all checks are made out to "CMN Hospitals" with the participant/team name in the memo line so we can add it to your total.
  4. How do I turn in matching gift forms?
    Complete a matching gift form (available from your company’s Human Resources) and send it to info@floridamiracle.org or you can send it to the following address:
