Auburn University Dance Marathon, or AUDM, is a year-long fundraising effort that culminates with an annual 14-hour event, where students get to meet miracle families treated at their local Children’s Miracle Network hospital, participate in games and dancing, and reveal their annual fundraising total. This year, AUDM revealed that $502,195 was raised to directly benefit children at Piedmont Columbus Regional. Nationally, there are more than 300 Miracle Network Dance Marathon chapters. Students involved in a campus dance marathon organization spend a year gaining leadership, teamwork, and nonprofit business experience while raising funds and awareness for their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. To date, AUDM has raised more than $2.5 million and won six awards at the national Miracle Network Dance Marathon level as well as many other awards and recognition for involvement and leadership on Auburn’s campus.
