You  Can Change Lives Too!

Get Involved Today.



Being a part of morale means getting people amped up and excited before and during Dance Marathon! Morale members help recruit other dancers and teams to participate and fundraise for Dance Marathon as well as perform in dances and activities during the event. Morale embodies the spirit of the miracle children we dance for. Keeping people happy and excited all night long helps us raise more money and show the kids how much fun we’re having helping them. 



UMDM Dancers are spirited individuals who are looking to get involved in the largest growing student-run philanthropy on campus. Your role will be to enjoy the many activities throughout the event, fundraise for the Baystate Children’s Hospital, and dance alongside other patrons of UMDM. Marathon Dancers are the heart and core of Dance Marathon. You will have the opportunity to network with other driven students, give back to your community, enjoy live entertainment, hear firsthand stories from local Miracle Families, and make a real difference. Join a team or create your own! You do not need to be part of any preexisting RSO or Greek Organization to get involved!


We hope you join us in celebrating in 12 hours of dancing fun. Register to be a UMDM Dancer today!

If you have any questions, feel free to contact us!



"Over the four years that I was an undergraduate I participated in the Dance Marathon fundraiser.  It was not until my senior year, however, that I became more involved.  UMass Dance Marathon quickly transformed from a group that produced a once a year dance-a-thon, to an organization of passionate individuals striving year-round for an incredible cause. UMDM continues to grow and I believe the feeling of all those involved, is that in ten years the event will include thousands of participants and raise even more money for the miracle children of Baystate. One way to accomplish this growth is to have its participants continue fundraising after graduation. This is why I have decided to continue my participation in Dance Marathon and try to attract fellow Alumni.  Together, we can transform Dance Marathon and most importantly, save kids lives!"

Steering Committee

There is tons of planning that goes into UMDM and Dance Marathon. For that reason, our close-knit steering committee works with families, sponsors, hospitals and UMass to make sure that we meet our fundraising goals, run a successful marathon and most importantly, save lives. If you love the kids as much as we do, fill out an application and help us get one step closer to our goal! 


Our Steering Committee is currently full. But stay tuned toward the end of the 2019 fall semester for information on spring positions!
