Our Mission

The University of Iowa Dance Marathon creates and sustains special projects to provide emotional and financial support and services for pediatric oncology and bone marrow transplant patients and their families treated at University of Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital. 

We have raised $30,388,382.85 for the kids!


The University of Iowa Dance Marathon is a student organization that provides year-round support to youth cancer patients and their families. The Big Event is a 24-hour Dance Marathon where students assemble to celebrate the children survivors and remember the children who have passed away throughout the year. Dancers remain standing (if able) for the full 24 hours with no caffeine allowed! This year the Big Event is February 5-6, 2021. Please continue through the site to find more information about our activities and events. Thank you.
