Big Red Thon: FAQ


To raise money for the kids at Upstate Golisano Children's Hospital through a Dance Marathon at Cornell.

About the Event

Big Red Thon (BRT) is Cornell’s chapter of the nationwide collegiate Dance Marathon movement, sponsored by Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. BRT and PhiDE share the same fundraising partner: Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital in Syracuse. The annual dance marathon celebrates a year of raising money and awareness for these pediatric patients.


In recent years BRT has raised over $180,000 to help fund the child life program, the pediatric unmet needs fund, and the purchase of MRI goggles to help kids get the hospital comforts and childhood they deserve.

We cannot wait to support the children at Upstate Golisano for our 7th year straight on Saturday, November 12th 2022 from 2pm-12am!
