What is STATEDM?
Learn what Dance Marathon is!
In February of 2016 Mississippi State University hosted the inaugural Dance Marathon, STATEDM, for our University! This organization was originally established in 1991 at Indiana University by student Jill Stewart after the loss of her friend Ryan White to the AIDS virus contacted through a blood transfusion. Thousands of students across the nation have joined together to support Children’s Miracle Network through Dance Marathon. This will be the first Dance Marathon event held at Mississippi State University and all of the money fundraised throughout the year will support Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. Students who attended STATEDM participated in a 6 hour no sleeping, no sitting event that included dancing, eating, socializing, meeting Le Bonheur patients, and several more fun activities in order to raise money for this worthwhile cause.
Join us as we start our mission for 2017 to raise $50,000 FOR THE KIDS!
