Jagathon: IUPUI’s Dance Marathon would not be what it is today without the help of many local, regional, and national sponsors. Sponsors have the chance to be an integral part of the largest student-run philanthropy on IUPUI’s campus. 

Becoming one of our partners provides your organization with the opportunity to give back to Riley, IUPUI, and the greater Indianapolis community and to help create new miracles. Through your generosity, your organization will have the opporunity to gain exposure to our over 1,250 dancers and thousands of social media follwers. 

Jagathon aims to provide our partners valuable marketing and promotional opportunities that extend throughout the greater Central Indiana community. In addition to monetary donations, Jagathon also graciously welcomes in-kind donations. We rely on the generosity of sponsors like you to provide many donations for our silent auction, fundraising incentives, and event food catering. These donations help to feed our participants and to raise funds at our main event and multiple other community events. We are grateful for anything your company would be interested in donating.

  • Start a High School Dance Marathon

    Dance Marathon is a year-long fundraiser that culminates in a multi-hour event to to raise money for Riley Hospital for Children.

    High School Dance Marathons fundraise, plan, and execute their dance marathons just like collegiate dance marathons! The passion and enthusiasm exhibited with our high school dance marathons is no less impactful, and they are a critical part in the long-term success of our program. 

    Our High School Dance Marathons Committee is comprised of dedicated chair positions that assist and support our high school programs through every step of the process. This is where collegiate students work directly with the high school students on a peer-to-peer platform.

    Dance Marathons are a great way to combine philanthropy with student leadership, while also organizing a fun event for students to attend. Many colleges also have dance marathons, so this is something that high schoolers can continue with after they graduate. 

    Is your high school interested in starting a dance marathon? Contact Claire Ralston, our Director of High School Dance Marathons, at, for more information!
