Dear Alumni,

Your time staying connected and supporting the mission of UI Dance Marathon doesn’t have to end at graduation. In fact, the Dance Marathon Alumni Group (DMAG) exists to keep you updated throughout the year in addition to hosting events in your city. There are no annual dues and you are automatically eligible to be part of DMAG for just having participated as a student or a leadership team member in any year.

Last year, DM alumni alone raised $200,481.23 FTK and more than 100 alumni participated at the Big Event and other weekend festivities, including an opening ceremony watch party, an alumni social at The Airliner, a closing ceremony watch party at Fieldhouse Bar and Grill and much more. The Dance Marathon Alumni Group also offers recognition opportunities, as each year we recognize the DMAG Volunteer of the Year and the DMAG Event of the Year. More awards and opportunities are in the works for the Dance Marathon 24 year as well.

Forever For The Kids,
Nic Rusher
President, Dance Marathon Alumni Group (DMAG)
