Washington University in St. Louis


Founded in 1999, Washington University Dance Marathon (WUDM) has supported thousands of families at St. Louis Children’s Hospital and SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital. Through Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals of Greater St. Louis (CMN St. Louis), students, faculty, and alumni have raised over $1.3 million to benefit these two local children’s hospitals. In celebration of the 20th event, WUDM 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.
