On October 2, 2017, Miracle Network Dance Marathon programs across North America will be celebrating Child Health Day.

Child Health Day is a United States Federal Observance Day observed on the first Monday in October. On this day, the president invites "all agencies and organizations interested in child welfare to unite on Child Health Day in observing exercises that will make the people of the United States aware of the fundamental necessity of a year-round program to protect and develop the health of the children of the United States."

The day focuses on a range of child health issues such as prenatal care, adolescent health, the impact of daycare on a child's development, preventing injuries healthy eating and lifestyle choices and immunizations.

We invite you to join us and #CommitForTheKids.
