What is DMUM?
Dance Marathon at the University of Michigan is the largest student-run non-profit organization in the State of Michigan. DMUM strives to raise both monetary support and awareness for the needs of the pediatric rehabilitation therapies at C.S. Mott Children's Hospital in Ann Arbor and Beaumont Children's Hospital in Royal Oak. These pediatric rehabilitation therapies allow children with mental, physical, and emotional disabilities to work through their challenges to become the kids they want to be. Through our year long program, teams of 15 to 20 college students raise funds for the therapies, and create meaningful relationships with the children that we support. The connections that our college students make with the children by volunteering at therapies, bonding with the kids and their families, as well as attending DMUM annual events make a positive difference in both the lives of the kids and the students. At the end of each school year, hundreds of students “step into the shoes of the kids” by standing on their feet for 24 hours in a marathon filled with dancing, entertainment, and fellowship.LEARN MORE
