Chicago Dance Marathon Event Recap

We Are Cosplay at Chicago Dance Marathon

We Are Cosplay at Chicago Dance Marathon

We Are Cosplay was fortunate enough to be invited to participate in the Chicago Dance Marathon for Lurie Children’s Hospital this year by Premier Sponsor, Solstice Mobile.

Chicago Dance Marathon is an inspirational event that will change your life. We danced (or stood) for 13.1 hours in honor of the children and families of Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. We were entertained and inspired as more than 20 patient families were there to celebrate with us, and share their amazing stories. This is THE largest fundraising drive made by Lurie Children’s Hospital, and a very important cause. From our experience, the most rewarding and epic event we have yet to be involved with. Over $358,000 was raised to help families with children facing critical illness.


We thank everyone who was able to be a part of this heart warming event.
