Every year, Nicklaus Children's collaborates with local radio stations, both in English and Spanish, to host a fundraiser that encourages donations. All donations from listeners stay local supporting the patients of Nicklaus Children's Hospital, with options for one-time or recurring gifts. Listeners also have the chance to hear inspiring stories from Nicklaus Children's patient families, staff and clinicians throughout the day. The English-speaking radiothon, iHeart4Kids, is a collaboration with iHeartMedia, and the Spanish-speaking radiothon is a collaboration with Glades Media Radio Group.

Each spring, Dance Marathon is a nationwide movement involving college and high school students at more than 350 collegiate and 200 high schools across the country, all raising money for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital in their community. These students spend a year learning invaluable leadership and life skills while raising funds and interacting with children’s hospital patients and families. The year culminates with a 8-40 hour long event where the students stay on their feet through dancing, games and entertainment in celebration of the total amount raised that year.
Participants enjoy a variety of activities, including dancing, playing games and the opportunity to hear stories from "Miracle Children" and families who have been helped by Nicklaus Children's. Sponsorship opportunities are available.
