Dance Marathon at LSU is a year-long, student-run organization that raises money and awareness for our local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. Students work to make sure that the patients at Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital in Baton Rouge are receiving the best possible care.
Dance Marathon at LSU began in 2013 with a small group of students who were passionate about helping the kids at OLOLCH. In its first year, Dance Marathon at LSU raised $105,557.88, breaking the national fundraising record for a first-year program. In the program’s second-year, DM at LSU raised $182,672.45, breaking another national record. This was just the beginning.
This will be Dance Marathon’s 7th year on LSU’s campus. In the past 6 years, our students have helped raise over $1,000,000 to help build the new free-standing children’s hospital which is scheduled to open in October 2019.
