Hello all! This year I am participating in my final Ball State Dance Marathon. No, this is not an actual dance. Trust me you don't want to see me dancing.
This is my final year being apart of this organization and I have the honor to hold a director position. I am the Director of Marathon Relations for BSUDM 2019. In my position I assist 16 high schools throughout Indiana in making their DM come to life. This is such an honor to see high schoolers doing something that is bigger than themselves at such a young age. They inspire me everyday. Along with assiting high schools I am in contact with other collegiate Dance Marathons and show support the day of their marathon.
Dance marathon is where the Ball State community comes together and stands for the kids at Riley Hospital for Children for 13.1 hours. For those of you who don't know, Ball State Dance Marathon fully funds the Magic Castle Cart and the Pallative Care at Riley. Just to fill you in a bit, the Magic Castle Cart is a cart filled with toys, books, games and other fun things for the kids at Riley. By donating 1 dollar you will be supplying one toy for this amazing program. The Pallative Care it the end of life care for these kids. Money donated to BSDM goes directly to purchasing comfort measures such as yoga mats, messages, aroma therapies, and much much more!
I DM because I want all those 349 beds at Riley to be empty and I will not stop supporting until this happens. I cannot do this alone so with the help of you I'm personally inviting you to join my team in supporting the kids at Riley Hospital for Children! We have until Febuary 16, 2019 to make this happen. Thank yo from the bottom of my heart!!!!
