“UI Dance Marathon 28 Day to DM”

IOWA CITY, IA — On October 26th and 27th, the University of Iowa Dance Marathon will have their annual fundraising push day: Day to DM. The event will take place from 9:00 PM Tuesday to 9:00 PM Wednesday.

Day to DM is a highly anticipated and inspirational annual event that encourages dancers, leadership, and the community to Donate Money, Drive Motivation, and most importantly strive for Endless Hope for the 1000+ families that University of Iowa Dance Marathon supports financially and emotionally.

This year we are excited to be back in person with our traditional events, and to also be able to utilize the virtual tools we have developed during our last year. A few of the events include trivia, fundraising power half hour, matching hours, new merchandise drops, and many fundraising incentives.

“Day to DM is one of my favorite Dance Marathon events.” Anna Dodge, Executive Director, shared. “Day to DM is many people’s first introduction to what Dance Marathon represents: endless hope for kids and families affected by pediatric cancer. We will be delivering countless miracles to these families through the combined passion and commitment shown by our organization and our community. I am so excited to feel the energy and joy that will be filling the IMU Tuesday and Wednesday because of the generous donations we receive for the strongest kiddos.”

Look out for more information and announcements regarding this day on our website and social media platforms.
