This year, I will be participating in my second Ball State 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. Being on the committee, Riley Relations, I have gotten to interact and hang out with some of the awesome kids that seek care at Riley. They have already opened my eyes to how they live each day with a smile on their face and have hope for the rest of their lives and for others' around them.
What BSUDM Funds
All donations raised for and during this event goes soley towards The Magic Castle Cart and The Palliative Care Unit. The Magic Castle Cart is something very special at Riley Hospital for Children. This cart carries tons of little toys and gadgets for the kids to bring smiles and happiness to their hospital rooms, on their good days and bad. The Palliative Care Unit enhances the patients' quality of life by providing therapies such as music therapy, aroma therapy, smile therapy, and much more. This unique area of the hospital truly makes a difference for the children and families.
I am so excited to be involved and have volunteered my time and energy throughout the year to raise money for this incredible cause. 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 to create a better life and hope for those at Riley Hospital. Thank you again for taking time to read this!
Lots of Love and as always, For The Kids!!!
