The Cal Poly Dance Marathon chapter fundraises year-round for Cottage Children's Medical Center (CCMC) located in Santa Barbara, California. CCMC is the designated Children's Miracle Network hospital for the San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties. More than 14,000 children are treated annually in their Acute Pediatrics Unit, Neonatal and Pediatric Intensive Care Units, the emergency department, pediatric trauma center, and specialized pediatric outpatient clinics. This hospital is the regional referral center for pediatric trauma. CCMC's outpatient clinics are located in Pismo Beach, Goleta, and Ventura.
All of the funds raised by Cal Poly Dance Marathon are directly donated to help the sick and injured kids at CCMC. The money provides support for diagnostic equipment and life-saving technology, medical supplies and treatments, and additional healthcare services including the Child Life program and family assistance.
