To create a team, join an existing team or sign up as an individual, visit our FirstGiving page, which is the central hub for all things fundraising! Click "Register," select "1" under quantity, fill in your account information and select "Next." From there, choose whether you would like to join an existing team, create your own team or join individually.

If you choose to create your own team, you will automatically become that team's captain. Other individuals can join your team by selecting your team's name during their registration process. 

As a dancer, you are expected to fundraise $100 for the Ronald McDonald House of Central Ohio. While this amount may seem daunting, there will be plenty of fundraising opportunities throughout the year leading up to the Dance Marathon and you can monitor your progress using your FirstGiving page. You can also share your FirstGiving page on social media to encourage your friends and family to make donations. 

Why $100, you ask? Read more about why your donations are so important to the Ronald McDonald House.





Throughout the year and during the Dance Marathon, Color Teams compete in different games, fundraisers and dances for the grand prize: The Graffiti Brick, which is BobcaThon's trophy for the winning Color Team.

Once you join a team as an individual or with an organization, you will be randomly placed on a Color Team with other individuals and groups. All members of teams will be placed on the same Color Team. During the day of the Dance Marathon, be sure to dress in your team's color-- the crazier, the better!
