- 2019 Indiana University Dance Marathon
Welcome to the 2019 Morale page!!!
What do you get when you put 79 crazy, weird, passionate college kids together? MIRACLES, that’s what. We not only bring out the best in each other, but we push each other and this organization to reach new heights. Our passion to make the world a better place, especially for the kids at Riley Hospital for Children, is shown through our dedication and the tie dye shirts we wear. Our colorful spirits help spread joy to everyone we meet, and we view everyday as an opportunity to change lives.
Morale works hard to create a twelve minute line dance to teach at IUDM each year. This dance ignites energy throughout the Tennis Center, and it motivates us to stay on our feet for 36 hours straight. Here’s last year’s dance if you want to see our wacky moves: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aAC6G9qyMOE
You might be wondering, “Who is Morale?” To give you an idea of our family, here are some ways we describe ourselves (in other words, just Google “positive adjectives to describe people”) :
Each year, Morale strives to push our fundraising total beyond what people think is possible. This year, we hope to raise $275,000 For The Kids. If we accomplish this goal, we will have raised the most money a single committee ever has in one year - knocking off Morale 2018 from the current record ;)
People ask us how we dance for 36 hours and how we raise outrageous funds. Our response? Nothing can stop us from wanting to make the kids smile. As Steve Jobs has said, “The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones that do.”
If you want to change your life, do dance marathon. If you want to save someone else’s life, do dance marathons.
GO OUT THERE AND MAKE THIS WORLD A BETTER PLACE.
For Ryan. For Ashley. For the kids.
