Dance Marathon at U of M
For the Kids
What is Dance Marathon?
Dance Marathon at the University of Michigan (DMUM), is the largest student-run non-profit organization in the state of Michigan. As a registered 501(c)-3 organization, we strive to raise money and awareness year-round for pediatric rehabilitation programs sponsored at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital in Ann Arbor and William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan. As a dancer, I will be standing on my feet for 30 consecutive hours to show support for the families and children who benefit from the programs sponsored by DMUM!
My fellow dancers and I aim to raise $300 for various physical and occupational therapy
programs. These programs including, Martial Arts therapy, Tree Climbing, TOPSoccer, and
Adaptive Swimming, help improve muscle control, strength, coordination, and confidence in children with disabilities. All rehabilitation programs are social in nature, and without support from DMUM, many would not exist. Over the past fifteen years DMUM has raised over $4.1 million, with over $510,000 raised last year alone! As we embark on our sixteenth year, we look forward to bringing together thousands of volunteers from our student body and community at large to unite in our continued effort to improve the lives of these children and their families.
