Learn about the essential components of Jagathon
Dance Marathon is neither a dance nor a marathon; it is a celebration of life. Jagathon has been helping children with life-threatening illnesses for 12 years, giving financial and emotional support to hundreds of families across Indiana. The money raised through our event is given directly to the Riley Hospital for Children through the Children’s Miracle Network.
At IUPUI we celebrate Dance Marathon weekend in March. We listen to music, play games, hang out with the kids we support, and even do a bit of dancing. Dance Marathon is for the kids- that’s always our focus. Jagathon is a 365 day commitment to raising money for the Riley Hospital for Children and with that comes the yearly celebration of our hard work during Dance Marathon Weekend. In 2015, we raised over $100,000.00 for the kids.
