It is our mission to dance until every child who has a dream of being well, has a chance to be so.
Dance Marathon is a nationwide youth-led philanthropy that benefits Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Seattle University's Dance Marathon (SUDM) is a student-led organization that specifically benefits Seattle Children's Hospital's Uncompensated Care Fund. Through the Uncompensated Care Fund, SUDM provides free lifesaving health care to patients at Seattle Children's who otherwise would not be able to afford care. We believe than no family with a sick child should ever have to worry about anything but their child's wellness, regardless of their ability to afford medical care.
Our fundraising culminates in an annual 16-hour celebratory Dance Marathon that features activities, delicious catered food, a photobooth, games, speakers, and performances by student groups and community members. Fundraising participants in Dance Marathon pledge that they will not sit down during the 16 hours to literally stand in solidarity with patients at Seattle Children's who cannot take a break from their illnesses.
