About DM at LSU

Dance Marathon at LSU is a year long, 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 are receiving the best possible care available. 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.
