BAD DANCING SAVES LIVES.
LoboTHON is UNM's largest student run philanthropy. Our mission is to raise money and awareness for the UNM Children’s Hospital. We dedicate our efforts to the 85,000+ miracle children being treated yearly at UNMCH to aid in their treatment processes and in the pursuit of giving every child the chance to be a Lobo.
Over the past nine years at UNM, we have raised over $400,000 for UNMCH.
WE'RE THIS GENERATION, FIGHTING FOR THE NEXT.
UNM Children's Hospital is New Mexico's only dedicated pediatric hospital. They treat kids from each corner of the state with a range of injuries and illnesses. UNMCH provides family centered care unlike any other hospital in New Mexico. This includes childcare for siblings, meals for family members, music and art therapy, play areas and toys, and a school for kids not able to attend other schools or leave the hospital.
Our kiddos range in age from 3 to 17, have various hobbies like painting and playing soccer, and each have a special story to tell.
BECOME A PART OF THE MOVEMENT.
As a UNM student, there are countless ways to get involved! Wether you sign up to fundraise with us or join a committee, everything you do with LoboTHON benefits the treatment of the 85,000 children treated at UNMCH each year.
FIGHT TO END CHILDHOOD ILLNESS WITH US.
By partnering with us, you are helping provide family centered care to the 85,000 children that are treated annually at UNMCH. You are investing in the next generation, the future of our state. In the past, our money has gone towards buying ventilators, a baby carrier box for the emergent helicopter, art therapy supplies and more.
We recruit 500-700 students every year to raise as much money for UNMCH as possible. We have a diverse and expansive network of members dedicated to giving back to their community.
