UGA Miracle shatters records during “Zero Zeros” fundraising push

This past Thursday, the University of Georgia’s Dance Marathon program, UGA Miracle, hosted their annual Zero Zeros Fundraising Push. The goal of Zero Zeros is in the name – to have zero registered Dance Marathon participants at a fundraising level of $0 by the end of the day. For many students, this is their first opportunity to experience first hand the power of peer to peer fundraising. UGA Miracle members join together to encourage, educate, and celebrate the fundraising successes of their fellow philanthropists. Funds raised by UGA Miracle benefit Children’s Rehabilitation Services and the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorder Center.

For the 2020 Zero Zeros fundraising push, UGA Miracle raised a total of $123,768.22. An incredible 66% YOY increase from 2019. This total is especially extraordinary, given that many of the organization’s usual in person fundraising plans were not possible due to restrictions surrounding COVID-19. Despite these obstacles, UGA Miracle still rallied together to make history. Finance Director of UGA Miracle, Reece Baker, shared, “Given what’s going on in the world, it amazes me what this organization continues to accomplish. I would have been happy with any amount raised…but the fact that we had our highest total ever and almost a $50,000 increase, it was really special”.

Thank you, UGA Miracle, for continuing to be a beacon of hope for our patients and their families! Congratulations on such a successful Zero Zeros!
