CometTHON at UT Dallas

Mission Statement

To unite the University of Texas at Dallas campus and larger community to support the miracle families of Children’s Health.

What is the one event that your organization is most proud of hosting?

Without a doubt, we are most proud of our self-titled, 8-hour dance marathon event, CometTHON. CometTHON brings together hundreds of students for a night of dancing, food, fun activities, and performance. We feature performances from several organizations, from on and off campus, that get to engage in the rest of our activities that night as well. CometTHON attendees have the opportunity to listen to the testimonies of our wonderful Miracle Kids, children that have undergone life-saving operations at Children’s Health Dallas in the past. These stories show us the impact we can make in the lives of these families. At the finale, we reveal how much money we raised that year. Last Spring, we revealed a collectively raised total of $31,864.01! This event is not only a bonding experience for our executive team that plans and runs it, but also for students from many different organizations that wouldn’t always have interactions together otherwise.
