Family Events

Throughout the academic year, Dance Marathon organizes many different events that help raise funds for our cause and put smiles on the kids’ faces. Not only do these events help fund pediatric rehabilitation programs, but they are also a fun way for DMUM families and kids to bond with their team of students, forming those relationships and support networks that we often strive for in DMUM. In particular, we have four events geared towards families for four fun days, where we often realize the reason we all stand at the marathon, as everyone is united For The Kids


Pumpkin Carving

Fall isn’t truly here until we kick off the year with DMUM in high-gear! Families meet their teams for the first time as everyone comes dressed up in halloween, carve pumpkins together, and enjoy other fall activities and crafts at one of our most popular events among both the students and families!

Charity Ball

One of the most beloved DMUM Family Events, a night full of glamour and fun as you dance the night away with you team and other DMUM families and students!  Get dressed up and enjoy a night full of music, smiles, and everyone’s best (and worst) dance moves as we get one last event in together before VictorThon!



Come have fun with the students while they stand for 24 hours to support the kids. Various student organization groups will entertain, while speakers and activities will help keep us focused on our cause, and any free moments will be used learning the line dance and bonding with your team. Families are even welcome to join the fun and show off their talent on stage!
