What is UNR Dance Marathon?

A National Movement, with Local Impact

The Cause

UNR Dance Marathon (UNR DM) is a student led, year-round philanthropic movement, uniting students. As a fundraising program, the organization works throughout the year to raise funds and awareness to change kids’ health and change the future for Renown Children’s Hospital, the local CMN Hospital in Reno, Nevada. 

How does it work?

 Students and organizations join the campus-wide movement by registering and creating fundraising pages, participating in events on campus, and asking friends and family members for donations. The year culminates at an annual Dance Marathon event, which will be held on April 22. 2023. This is where the students connect with and honor patient families, play games, enjoy entertainment, fundraise, and reveal the annual fundraising total – all in support of kids at our local children’s hospital.
