This year, I will be participating in a Riley Dance Marathon and standing on my feet in honor of the kids at Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health, Indiana’s only comprehensive children’s research hospital. All proceeds from this event directly benefit Riley Hospital; I am so excited to be involved and have volunteered my time and energy throughout the year to raise money for this incredible cause. Riley Dance Marathon is a philanthropic movement in Indiana led by high school and college students. 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 I really believe in the work my classmates and I are doing for this cause. 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 for the kids? I know that our Riley Dance Marathon could not be as successful as it is without your help. I too am a Riley kid. In 2009 I was diagnosed with type-1 diabetes and was admitted to Riley Children's Hospital where I was given amazing care and where I as well as my family felt welcomed into the Riley family. Whatever you can give helps this amazing cause, so in advance thank you for your donations as well as your generosity!
