Our History

Bulls For Kids, originally known as Dance Marathon at USF began in 2004 when a group of college students decided to create positive change. Through the years, this organization has evolved immensely. In 2014, the organization switched from Dance Marathon at USF to Bulls For Kids. In 2017, BFK switched hospitals and began to support local hospital, Shriners Healthcare for Children-Florida. In 2020, BFK raised their millionth dollar as an organization.
