Dancing for the Kids

Dancing for the Kids Join us on October 20, 2017 to support Akron Children's Hospital and the Showers Family Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorders!!!

Every month, six children are diagnosed with some form of cancer at Akron Children’s Hospital. Akron Children's cancer program is ranked by the “U.S. News & World Report” as one of the best among children's hospitals nationwide. The program, housed in the Showers Family Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorders, ranks in the top one-third of pediatric cancer centers in the U.S. in terms of the number of new cancer cases treated each year and is a member of the Children's Oncology Group (COG), the world's largest childhood cancer research entity. Dancing For the Kids is a fundraiser for the Showers Family Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorders. An event that can easily make a person think of the hit television show "Dancing with the Stars", Dancing For The Kids pairs a local government, medical, or business professional with a University of Akron student. The pair dances together and is later judged. Each dancer raises money to donate to Showers Family Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorders. With eight specialties on the US News & World Report Best Children’s Hospitals rankings, Akron Children’s is the largest pediatric provider in northeast Ohio. We have two hospital campuses, 20 primary care and 63 pediatric specialty locations, and our dedicated staff handles more than 650,000 patient visits a year. We serve as a major teaching affiliate of Northeast Ohio Medical University and offer a number of pediatric subspecialty fellowship programs. In addition to providing high value, family-centered care, we strive to find ways to advance the prevention and treatment of childhood illness and injury through research.
