GREENVILLE, S.C. – Clemson Miracle Network has raised $234,851 to benefit Children’s Hospital of Greenville Health System (GHS). This donation is the largest GHS Children’s Hospital has received from a university organization.

Clemson Miracle Network is a student-led organization at Clemson University. Participating students raised money across a 10-month period by hosting events, peer fundraising, sponsorships and the annual Dance Marathon, in which students vow to stand and dance for 12 hours in support of GHS Children’s Hospital. More than 300 students participated in this year’s Dance Marathon.

The funds will support the renovation of the hospital’s healing garden, an endowment to send patients to pediatric summer camps and Safe Kids Upstate.

“We are so thankful for everyone that came out this year to support Clemson Miracle Network and GHS Children’s Hospital,” said Jennifer Jameson, Children’s Miracle Network Manager. “I am thrilled to honor this organization for all the hard work they put into making this the most successful year yet!”

The Clemson Miracle Network will be recognized in a special check presentation on Monday, April 2 at 7 p.m.
