Dance Marathon “DM” is a great philanthropy, founded in 1991 in memory of Ryan White, taking place each year on over 100 university campuses nationwide. Since its start in 2001 the University of Toledo Dance Marathon has become a wonderful growing tradition on The University of Toledo’s campus. DM’s sole purpose is to raise money to support Children’s Miracle Network. Specifically, UTDM directly supports Toledo’s very own Mercy Children’s Hospital. UTDM is a student organized event that has a spectacular impact on many lives each year. In the time it has been on the Toledo campus it has generated just less than $400,000, of that $59,000 in 2011 alone. This year's goal is $80,000! Every year the number of participants continues to grow. UTDM is excited for all who make the decision to join this growing tradition of philanthropy. Like other traditions on campus UTDM will be here for a long time to come. However, it is the one that will be with you for a life time. It is an experience that, being a part of, will put a smile on your face years from now as you look back to your college days.
|Who are we?|
We all are college students with a common goal. That goal is to give as much help as possible to the kids, and their families, who benefit from what we do. We all were lucky enough to be given a good chance in life that has brought us this far. There are some children who, without organizations like Children’s Miracle Network, wouldn’t make it through middle school. As a whole, we are just ordinary people taking the chance to give something back to the community that supports us.
|Children's Miracle Network|
Children’s Miracle Network “CMN”, a non-profit organization, works throughout the country offers assistance to those in great need. Since its founding, 29 years ago, CMN has grown immensely. Some of the millions of children and families helped each year probably live in your very own community. Please visit CMN at http://childrensmiraclenetworkhospitals.org/ for more information. Don’t forget, whether you donate time or money to UTDM or CMN, it is for the kids!
