The purpose of Hogs for Hope is to unite the University of Arkansas and the surrounding community in an impassioned effort to provide financial support to Arkansas Children’s Hospital while inspiring patients and their families.
Hogs for Hope strives to uplift the children of ACH while facilitating the growth of students into active community leaders and supporting Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
We are an RSO at the University of Arkansas and work year round to support Arkansas Children’s Hospital through fundraising and events. Our biggest event is a Dance Marathon.
Dance Marathon is a nationwide movement where students spend a year learning leadership and life long skills while raising funds. All the hard work and dedication leads up to an end of the year dance marathon which lasts for 12 hours straight of standing, no sitting. There are many events during this time, such as dancing, games, and many other activities, one of which we get to meet some of the kids and families. Everything we do is For The Kids!
