About This Activity

Dance Marathon is a nationwide youth-led philanthropy that benefits Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Seattle University's Dance Marathon (SUDM) is a student-led organization that specifically benefits Seattle Children's Hospital's Uncompensated Care Fund. Through the Uncompensated Care Fund, SUDM provides free lifesaving health care to patients at Seattle Children's who otherwise would not be able to afford care. We believe than no family with a sick child should ever have to worry about anything but their child's wellness, regardless of their ability to afford medical care.

Our efforts to fundraise and raise awareness of Children's Uncompensated Care Fund culminate in an annual signature event in February, a 16-hour celebration. Attendees challenge themselves to participate for the entire 16 hours in order to demonstrate solidarity with the patients at Children's who can't take a break from their illnesses.


On November 8, 2015, we are holding our first annual "Color Me a Miracle 5k". This run/walk is open to both Seattle University Affiliates and to the public, and it is a chance for participants to gather as a community, have fun, and meet our Miracle Children. Just like the popular Color Run, our Miracle Children will be posted throughout the route showering the participats with color powder. We welcome people of all ages and abilities to sign up! We will also have a 1K dash for children ages 13 and under during the event. 

After the 5k portion is over, we welcome all our participants and volunteers to join us in the Union Green for music, crafts, and much more!
