ZAGATHON RAISES OVER $70,000 FOR KIDS AT SACRED HEART CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL

ZAGATHON

On April 7, 2018 hundreds of people flocked to the Hemmingson Ballroom at Gonzaga University for a night of bad dancing and saving lives. Zagathon is an 8-hour dance marathon that raises money for Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital.

Formerly Gonzaga University Dance Marathon, newly re-branded Zagathon was founded in 2013 by student, Shelby Wells. She had hopes of making a difference for the kids at Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital, raising $6,000 for the hospital in the first year. Since its humble beginnings, Zagathon ended 2018 fundraising at $71,223.68.

Through donations, fundraisers, kickback nights and sponsorships, Zagathon has raised more than $180,000 to date.

Special thanks to 2018 Zagathon sponsors – Love’s Travel Stops, Numerica Credit Union, Colvico, Sodexo and STCU
