SU Dance Marathon 2018

Congratulations to our Seattle U Dance Marathon students who raised $160,217 to support Childrens Hospital's fight against cancer. Not only does this student-led philanthropy raise money for a good cause, it provides incredible leadership opportunities for the students involved.

Encourage your students to be a part of Dance Marathon while they are at Seattle U!

Thanks to all of you who supported our students in this. We know our SU families contribute much to this effort.
