Purdue University Dance Marathon (PUDM) is an organization dedicated to raising money to support children at Riley Hospital. As I am sure you are aware of Riley Hospital for Children is a place providing care beyond medicine promoting emotional healing along with physical healing. As a Riley Family your stories of bravery and courage bring our dancers closer to the realities of Riley Hospital for Children. Having Riley Families participate in our fundraisers throughout the year, and the marathon itself, helps us gain the support of thousands of students here at Purdue University. Your children remind us of what Riley Hospital for Children represents and the differences that can be achieved through our work. This year our marathon will be November 17th-18th. Invitations will be sent out near the end of August.
