Howlathon participants from all over campus stood for the entire eight hour event in honor of the kids being treated at Arkansas Children’s.. Students heard patient testimonies, played games, participated in fundraising dare challenges like drinking a blended happy meal for donations, and the morale dance–a line dance every participant learns throughout the duration of the event.

Members of the Arkansas State baseball team even joined the fun and together raised over $1,100! A few members from the team even got up on stage to teach the morale dance to JaKiah, an ambassador from Arkansas Children’s. All of the players in attendance were full of energy and excitement to give back to their community. Thank you to the AState baseball team!
