To be a dancer, you don’t have to dance, you just have to care about the kids!
Throughout the 12-hour marathon, we DO learn a dance, but it’s fun and really low-key. Everyone does it together at the very end, right before we find out how much we raised. The most important thing is that you remain standing the WHOLE time! That’s what people are giving you money to do!
By signing up to be a dancer, you are pledging to raise money for Riley Hospital for Children. 100% of the funds go to Riley. 50% go directly to the Oncology Research Center, and the other 50% goes towards a general fund to help the areas in need.
Most importantly, BUDM is FUN! It’s a great way to get involved on campus and donate to a wonderful cause. You’ll meet a lot of new people and make tons of new friends. But the best part is knowing that, by standing for twelve hours, you raised money for someone who will directly feel the impact of your donation!
