Alexis Hobbs, Miracle Makers’ donor relations director and future organization president, said in past years some dancers have even donated their hair on stage— encouraged by the promise of more donations.

“I kind of had a go big or go home attitude and decided to apply for president,” Hobbs said. “I think for me, it was amazing to see how much as college students we can do for these kids at Children’s. I’ve been lucky enough to be healthy so I wanted to give back to kids that aren’t as lucky as I’ve been. I love this organization so much.”
In addition to individual donation contributions from Raiderthon participants, Hobbs said Marion’s Piazza donates $5,000 each year to the cause. In 2018, Raiderthon raised $34,202.
Hobbs said the community is encouraged to come to the event to watch the dancers and make donations of their own. Anyone interested in donating to Miracle Makers’ Raiderthon can visit raiderthon.org to donate online.
