This upcoming year, I will be participating in my Third and FINAL Ball State University Riley Dance Marathon and standing on my feet for 13.1 hours on February 16th, 2019 in honor of the kids at Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health, Indiana’s only comprehensive children’s research hospital.
For this year I am on BSU DM's Executive Board as the Director of Accounting! I am responsible for keeping track of all online and offline donations. I could not be more blessed and honored to take on such a huge role for a cause I am so passionate about. Riley Dance Marathon is a philanthropic movement, under Children Miracle Network Hospitals, in Indiana led by high school and college students.
Ball State alone funds the Palliative Care Unit, which pays for nurse salaries, equipment, and anything else the unit may need. We also fund Magic Castle Cart which has thousands of dollars worth of toys that are handed out to kids to practice smile therapy! This is so so important for these kids and their families. It helps to give them hope, peace, and be surrounded by LOVE!!
Last year, more than 80 Riley Dance Marathons raised more than $6.5 million for the kids at Riley Hospital! I am very passionate about Riley Hospital and hope with each marathon, as a team we can change the lives of these strong children and give them so much hope. I would love for you to be a part of my success this year. Will you please support me as I strive to reach my personal fundraising goal of $2,000 FOR THE KIDS? I know that our Riley Dance Marathon could not be as successful as it is without your help. Any size donation will help, no matter how small or big, it all goes towards helping these wonderful kiddos at Riley Hospital. Thank you so much! I appreciate all of it!
