About DM at LSU
Dance Marathon at LSU is a yearlong, student run organization, which raises funds and awareness for our local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. Students dedicate their time and efforts to ensure the patients at Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital in Baton Rouge, Louisiana are receiving the best possible care available.
Dance Marathon at LSU began in 2013, with a small group of student who were passionate about helping the kids at Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital.
In its first year, DM at LSU broke the national fundraising record for a first-year program by raising $105,557.88. In the program’s second year, Dance Marathon at LSU again broke another record by raising $182,672.45 in its second year….and it was only just the beginning.
This will be Dance Marathon at LSU’s 6th year on campus, and in the past 5 years, our students have fundraised over $1,000,000 to help build the new freestanding children’s hospital, which is scheduled to open in 2019.
