History of DM
"In 1991, students at Indiana University founded dance marathon in the memory of Ryan White, a fellow student who passed away from HIV/AIDS. The program now spans North America, benefiting hundreds of hospitals and countless kids in the United States and Canada. Dance marathons have become a tradition on campus and in the community.
Miracle Network Dance Marathons are a movement of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, a non-profit organization that raises funds and awareness for more than 170 pediatric hospitals. We are the only children’s charity committed to having 100% of the funds raised stay local to support local kids.
Since inception, Miracle Network Dance Marathon has raised more than $135 million for kids across North America- ensuring that no child or family fights pediatric illness or injury alone." - Miracle Network Dance Marathon Website
