Soonerthon at University of Oklahoma Raises Over $808,000 for Children’s Hospital at OU Medical Center

Paraphrased from Jordan Smicklas/Executive Chairman, Soonerthon at the University of Oklahoma

During Soonerthon, our participants learned dances with our morale team, watched a Talent Show put on by our miracle children, celebrated our kids in a spirit tunnel, attended and put on a carnival for our kids, played sports with miracle families and danced at a rave with them for an hour before our total reveal at 10pm. The miracle families shared their stories, spent time with college students, cheered their children on in the talent show and walked down the spirit tunnel as their kids were celebrated by over 3,000 students.

Our program is unique because as OU’s largest student led philanthropy, we have an incredible opportunity to bring over 3,000 students together for a cause that directly benefits our community. Being only thirty minutes away from the Children’s Hospital at OU Medical Center, we are so lucky to be able to form bonds with miracle children and stay involved in their lives everyday rather than just at Soonerthon.

Love’s Travel Stops sponsored Soonerthon’s efforts to raise funds and awareness for the Children’s Hospital Foundation. This resulted in $808,021.17 raised for local children! Thanks Love’s for all your support.
