For The Kids!

Join the Movement

Welcome to Terp Thon!

Benefiting Children's National Health System in Washington D.C.

Terp Thon is a student-run organization at the University of Maryland that raises funds and awareness For The Kids at Children’s National Health System, our local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. As leaders of the Miracle Network Dance Marathon movement, we unite our campus and local community to inspire hope and healing in the children and their families at Children’s National. Terp Thon fosters innovation, determination, and creativity in today’s leaders. We celebrate our year-round efforts with a 12-hour Dance Marathon, bringing joy to the families who are the root of our cause.
