SU Dance Marathon
Last year SU families helped support our students in their fight to raise $125,000 For The Kids. As a result, Seattle University Dance Marathon raised $148,210 for Seattle Children's Hospital's Uncompensated Care Fund and Strong Against Cancer Research Initiative. Currently, Strong Against Cancer has a 93% remission rate. Pediatric cancer research receives less than 3% of the national cancer research funding, leaving families responsible for the treatment costs, totaling about $80,000 for one child.
This year, SU's Dance Marathon has an ambitious goal of raising $206,000! They are calling on our city of Seattle (the 206) and their supporters nation-wide to make an even larger impact. Donate now, on their "Miracle Day," January 11 or anytime through February 18. Our SU students raise more money for this program than any other college on the west coast!
