What is Dance Marathon the Marathon?
Dance Marathon the Marathon (DMM) is a marathon training group with the sole purpose of completing the Bank of America Chicago Marathon while raising money, awareness, and promoting the ideals of Dance Marathon. Runners who complete the training program and raise their funds will also have complete access to the Big Event.
This group aims to create new friendships, build links between students and faculty, community, and alumni, raise awareness for the largest philanthropy at the University of Iowa, and raise significant funds for Dance Marathon. It is commonly said that there is no greater challenge to the human mind and body than running a marathon and this race remains the ultimate symbol of achievement.
