I am so incredibly excited to participate in Ball State University Dance Marathon in support of Riley Hospital for Children again! This will only be my second year participating, but this organization has made such a large impact on me and how I have grown as a person over the past year. BSUDM has given me a chance to give back in such an incredible way to a hospital that has done so much for so many children and families. It has also allowed me to meet the most amazing people, and find my second family.
This year I have been blessed with the opportunity to serve as the Co-Director of Productions! I am so excited to help create the Dance Marathon experience for so many kids, families, and college students alike!
BSUDM sponsors the Magic Castle Cart that goes around the hospital and gives toys to the patients to practice smile therapy, it also has activities for the parents to do while their child is going through treatment. It only takes $1 to put a toy or activity in the cart to make a child or family member's day! Our fundraising efforts also go toward the Palliative Care Team which help children who have life limiting illnesses or chronic illnesses. They go above and beyond for these families to make them comfortable either in their home or in the hospital.
Thank you to everyone that has supported along this journey! Thank you to those who have read this and to those who will make contributions this year!
