Dance for a day. Give hope for a lifetime.
Dance Marathon is a national student-run organization hosted by hundreds of colleges to benefit their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. At Saint Mary’s College Dance Marathon (SMCDM) we support Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis. Riley provides medical treatment for critically or chronically ill children, regardless of a family’s ability to pay.
Throughout the year we are fundraising through EMX sales and events, culminating our year with the big event, our twelve-hour Marathon on Saturday April 7, 2018.
SMCDM first began in 2005, when some passionate women began the first Dance Marathon organization on campus and held their first marathon in 2006. Since then, we have raised thousands of dollars for kids at Riley. Our contribution to Riley makes Saint Mary’s College a recognized national spokesperson for Dance Marathon. In 2011, a room in the newly opened Riley Hospital Simon Family Tower was named in honor of Saint Mary’s students’ passionate efforts to raise money year after year.
