Our Cause

Baylor University Dance Marathon will be supporting McLane Children’s, the local CMN Hospital right down the road in Temple, Texas. McLane Children’s is a space designed specifically for children and staffed by specially trained pediatric doctors and surgeons in 40 pediatric specialties, nurses and support staff. With advanced technology, equipment and accommodations designed especially for children, we are committed to assuring the best possible outcome for each child entrusted to their care.

Take a peek below at a day in the life of one of their facility dogs, Lorenzo. Sweet pups like Lorenzo, with their expert training, calming presence, and constantly wagging tail, provide joy and comfort to the children and families at McLane Children’s.

McLane Children's Facility Dog – Lorenzo

Our new facility dog, Lorenzo, sure knows how to make people smile, even when they don't feel like it. His expert training, calming presence and constantly wagging tail are already making a difference for our patients and their families.
