University of Kansas Dance Marathon is a student organization dedicated to raising money for the Children’s Miracle Network...

We work to improve the lives of children and families plagued by pediatric illness both emotionally and financially. Our goal is to empower students all over the KU campus and Lawrence community to join, dance, laugh, fundraise, and become HEROES.

As members of KUDM, we understand that not all kids get to experience the same childhood memories that we did. Sometimes, kids need to prepare for their next surgery instead of preparing for college. They wear hospital bracelets instead of homecoming corsages. Their birthdays are filled with monitors beeping instead of friends singing. 

This is why we are challenging everyone to help us in the fight against pediatric illness and #EarnYourCape. This year is a year dedicated to the challenge accepters, the fighters, and the everyday HEROES.

Everyone can be a hero for someone whether you're a student, parent, teacher, or kid; it all starts with YOU.
