The Rings of CowboyThon Series: Blue // Support

blogheader-01.jpg

It is fitting that the very first ring in the Olympic symbol is blue. Blue often represents depth and stability, and more often then not, when you see blue, you see a lot of it. Just as much as you can see blue across the sky or in the ocean, you can find the same depth and stability in the support that CowboyThon provides.

            CowboyThon is an integral part of a vast series of Dance Marathon events across the country that make it their goal to provide support to children in need annually. In 2015 alone, Dance Marathon events raised more than $27 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, and every dollar raised goes directly to each school’s local Miracle Network Hospital. Hundreds of thousands of students uniting to benefit hundreds of hospitals and thousands of children is the epitome of support.

            Not only does CowboyThon support CMNH financially, but it also benefits miracle children in countless other ways. The amount of relationships and positive experiences that CowboyThon provides for children is immeasurable. Just as an expansive ocean can’t be measured, there is no way to sum up the magnitude of the hope that children find through programs like Dance Marathon… But even though it can’t be measured, it can always be seen.  

            For some children, every day is a miracle. CowboyThon aims to create miracles by making every child feel like an Olympian. Just like an ocean, CowboyThon is vast and supportive. CowboyThon runs deep.

Meet Our Champions!

Meet our first champion, Mattie! Mattie is 5 years old and has the most loving spirit around. Her favorite animal is a dog and she loves the color pink! Mattie is the example of a true miracle. When she was born in 2011 she was diagnosed with a congenital diaphragmatic hernia.  She has undergone many surgeries and had to spend her first birthday in the hospital. Since then she has been diagnosed with scoliosis, due to her organs developing in her chest, and has had two more diaphragmatic hernias. She is being monitored very closely and receives the best care possible at the Children’s Hospital in OKC. She even wants to be just like her doctor when she grows up!
