Founded in 1999, Dance Marathon at Washington University in St. Louis (DM) has supported thousands of families at St. Louis Children’s Hospital and SSM Cardinal Glennon Children’s Miracle Center. Through Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals of Greater St. Louis, students, faculty, and alumni have raised over $1.3 million to benefit these two local children’s hospitals. In celebration of the 15th event, DM is planning even more events and fundraisers to guarantee that more lives are touched. As the need for help grows, this year’s Dance Marathon can be a record setting celebration with the support and sponsorship of your business.
