Let’s dance.

Organized by the IUPUI Jagathon Committee, Jagathon is IUPUI’s dance marathon benefiting Riley Hospital for Children’s Palliative Care program. During Jagathon, dancers stay on their feet for 12 hours as a symbolic show of solidarity for the courageous children who fight with illness every day of their lives.

IUPUI Dance Marathon

Since 2003, Jagathon has raised more than $172,000 for Riley Children’s Hospital, including $50,721 in 2013 alone. We could be satisfied with that sizable amount, but instead we’re setting our sights higher than ever: In 2015, our goal is $100,000! With your help, we can reach our goal.
