By "dancing for those who can’t" for hours on end, college and high school students across Indiana raise millions of dollars each year for the children at Riley Hospital. 

Dance Marathons are electric, colorful and heartfelt.

The nation’s first Dance Marathon began in 1991 at Indiana University to honor AIDS patient Ryan White. Today, the Riley Dance Marathon program in Indiana is Riley’s fastest-growing fundraising event program, with more than 60 high school and collegiate programs.  

Dance Marathon participants showcase the best attributes of their generation through their energetic dedication to helping kids. 

By joining a Dance Marathon or supporting a dancer with your donation, you are investing in hope for today’s youth.

To learn more about Dance Marathons and how to become involved please email dancemarathon@rileykids.org.
