Please Help Support Me
in my journey to Indiana University's Dance Marathon 2013
Last year I raised almost $700. This year I want to break $1000! I will need YOU to make this happen!!
Dear Family and Friends,
As some of you may remember, I participated in Indiana University Dance
Marathon (IUDM) the fall of my freshman year at IU. I had no idea going into it what IUDM truly stood for. I was just a eager freshman wanting to get involved so I signed up! Little did I know that I was about to embark on a journey that would carry me throughout college.
For those who are not familiar with IUDM, the event was founded in 1991 in honor of Ryan White, and over the past 22 years we have raised more than $14 million for the kids at Riley Hospital for Children. The marathon lasts 36 hours and is jammed packed with activities including basketball, dancing, eating, and of course playing with the Riley kids!
Throughout the 36 hours of the 2012 Marathon it was clear to me that IUDM stood for so many different things—love, courage, growth, support, inspiration are just a few. Although, at the end, I couldn’t feel my feet, I was excited for the next marathon.
I wanted to do more than just be a dancer, though. A few months after the marathon, I applied to be one of the committees that work on this event. I was fortunate to be placed on the Marketing committee where I have been on focusing on Event Documentation. IUDM has become a major part of my college career so far and I plan on continuing to be apart of the magic for the rest of college and beyond
This year's dance marathon will occur the 15th-17th of November, 2013. All contributions will benefit Children's Miracle Network and 100% of the funds will go to Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis. Any contribution will help, and all donations are tax deductible.
Last year I was fortunate to raise nearly $700 and this year I’m making my goal $1000. I know that sounds ambitious, but I am determined to meet it and perhaps even exceed it!! Have no fear-- donating online is safe and easy! To make an online donation click on the button below!
