SU Dance Marathon
Seattle University Dance Marathon (SUDM) is a student run organization dedicated towards raising funds for Seattle Children’s Hospital and the Strong Against Cancer Research organization. Seattle Children’s Hospital is only one of many hospitals across the country that are part of the Children’s Miracle Network, dedicated to treating and researching children illnesses. With the outpour of fundraising and support from individuals, businesses and organizations like SUDM, Children’s Miracle Network hospitals are able to help and improve the lives of over 17 million children.
So how do we help make miracles happen? Each year, SUDM strives to educate and engage with the greater Seattle community through various events. Some of our events include a community-based Miracle Day when businesses/organizations partner to raise funds and the family fun Color Me a Miracle 5K in the spring! Our biggest event is a 16-hour dance marathon, happening on February 15, 2020, where SUDM gathers to celebrate Miracle Kids and their families.
In honor of Seattle Children’s 113th year, SUDM is aiming to register 700 participants and raise $113,000! Education and fundraising go hand in hand, so whether you donate $10 or volunteer 2 hours of your time, you are making a difference!
