About the campaign
I have been blessed with an amazing childhood and have loved kids as long as I can remember! My dad had a brain aneurysm and spent a lot of time in the hospital. I couldn't imagine anyone going through this, let alone a tiny human of a child!
I got involved with the Dance Marathon organization when I started at Butler University and immediately fell in love with the organization and being surrounded by so many people also passionate about making kids well!
The more I learned about Riley the more I knew it was a place deserving of my time and efforts. Riley takes the time to think through every step of a child's diagnosis and treatment and allows them to be hopeful and remain kids in this difficult time!
Thank you for supporting the kids and families at Riley. We all deeply appreciate your generosity.
