Purdue University Dance Marathon
West Lafayette, Indiana
Purdue University Dance Marathon was established in 2005 and is now in its 7th year and 8th marathon. Over the years PUDM has raised almost $600,000 for the kids and families at Riley Hospital for Children. Specifically, the money raised by PUDM goes towards the Cancer Center and Camp Riley. PUDM has grown from having only 100 dancers in its first year, to over 1000 in the December 2010 marathon. Dance Marathon is, and always has been, student run. Currently, an Executive Board of 24 students and over 250 committee members are actively planning and fundraising for PUDM 2011! The marathon could not take place without the help of the Purdue and West Lafayette/Lafayette communities. We are lucky enough to work with local businesses, restaurants, prominent community figures, athletic teams, and a variety of bands to aid with the marketing, fundraising, and entertainment during the marathon.
Most importantly, PUDM has developed close and personal relationships with multiple Riley kids and families. They are the heart, soul, and inspiration for the year-round fundraising and planning of the marathon. PUDM tries to give more than just money to the hospital; we try to also provide a wonderful and special experience for our Riley kids. The marathon is a celebration of life, hope, love, and dreaming BIG!
