A campus-wide celebration

SLADM Dancers with KidsDance Marathon is a student-driven, year-round effort to raise funds and awareness for the local children's hospitals, St. Louis Children’s Hospital and SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital.  This commitment culminates in a continuous, multi-hour fundraising event which blends games, music, dancing and philanthropy into one experience honoring the children treated at the local hospitals.  Miracle families attend the event, interacting with dancers and sharing their stories.

Since its inception in 2000 at Washington University in St. Louis, Dance Marathon has raised more than $1.5 million dollars for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals of Greater St. Louis.

Fostering community leaders

Dance Marathon gives students an incredible project-based learning opportunity.  Students learn about the importance of service and philanthropy while improving their leadership and professional skills, including working as a team, time management, and project management. Many large, national philanthropic events look very similar across the country, but with Dance Marathon, there is the opportunity to make an event that truly fits into and celebrates the culture of an individual campus.  Our staff collaborates with university and school administrators to provide educationally purposeful advising that promotes student leadership development.
