Welcome to my page :)
This year I am going to participate in my 4th and FINAL dance marathon here at Indiana University. This year I'm lucky enough to be on the Special Events committee for the second year!
All proceeds from this 36 hour long event directly benefit Riley Hospital for Children, which is Indiana's only comprehensive children's research hospital. Another great thing about Riley is that they treat all patients, regardless of their family's finicial standing. As the second-largest student-run philanthropy in the world, we have raised over $28 million (!!!!) for Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis. Since the start of IUDM in 1991, we have honored Ryan White’s incredible legacy by completely funding the Ryan White Center for Infectious Disease at Riley Hospital. We now have the opportunity to begin funding other areas of the hospital in need of our support.
My freshman year I got to hear stories from Riley kids and their families at my first ever marathon, and I saw the extent that this organization changes lives. I decided to join a committee (Executive Dancers) for my second dance marathon, and I raised more than I ever imagined I could and gained some of my best friends here at IU. My sophomore year I started nursing school, and it has made me even more passionate about the awesome Riley kids and the staff there. As this is my last year, my goal is to raise $13,000 for the kids!!! Any amount is so greatly appreciated, and it is for such a deserving cause. :)
