Why should I sign up as a dancer?
Dancers are our student-fundraisers who pledge to fundraise for sick kids at Seattle Children's Hospital. Dancers are apart of the SUDM community, fighting for a nationwide movement to end pediatric illness and get to attend The Dance Marathon in February to celebrate their fundraising accomplishments, our miracle kids, and the incredible work of Seattle Children's Hospital.
What is The Dance Marathon?
It is the culminating celebration of our fundraising efforts. The Dance Marathon is a sixteen hour event where participants dance in solidarity with the kids at Seattle Children's Hospital. Fun, food, and prizes are provided. At the end of the event our fundraising total is revealed!
When is The Dance Marathon?
February 17-18, 2018 Sat-Sun, 10am-2am.
Do I really have to stand the entire time?
We ask that each and every participant challenge themselves to participate as fully as possible throughout the event to dance in solidarity with patients at Seattle Children's who cannot take a break from their illnesses.
Will I be bored? What is there to do?
No, you will not be bored! The Dance Marathon is a fun, dynamic event with catered meals, snacks, a photobooth, games, performances, DJs, music, dancing, speakers, and visiting patients from Seattle Children's. It's an unforgettable experience!
What should I bring?
Bring a waterbottle, comfortable shoes, an extra pair of socks, and anything else you may need in those 16 hours, including deodorant. :)
The Dance Marathon is both exhausting and exhilarating. Here's what you need to know about the big day!
