Saturday’s Spartython benefits Sparrow Children’s Center

Published: Friday, February 19, 2021

LANSING, MI – Spartython, Michigan State University’s dance marathon benefitting the Sparrow Children’s Center, will look a little different this year but be sure to link to it virtually from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 20.

Throughout the year, this student-run MSU organization raises both monetary support and awareness for the needs of the Sparrow Children’s Center, the region’s only Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. At the end of the school year, hundreds of students “step into the shoes of the kids” by standing on their feet during a marathon filled with dancing, entertainment, and fun! Participants raise money from donors.
