LoboTHON, the University of New Mexico’s largest student-run philanthropy, broke yet another record by raising more than $103,000 for the UNM Children’s Hospital.
While LoboTHON hosts a series of events throughout the year to reach its fundraising goal, its largest event is an annual 13.1-hour dance marathon that features games, food and miracle stories from children from UNM Hospital who benefit from the fundraiser. It was held March 23.
“When I saw those numbers … that we had surpassed that goal, I started crying,” family hospital relations director Mohammed Assed. “You could feel how much of an impact this campus made for the future Lobos being treated at UNM Children’s Hospital.”
