  • 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 15 dedicated Coordinators 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 Shelbie Walker, our Director of High School Dance Marathons, at for more information!
