Hello everyone! Thank you so much for your donations to Pitt Dance Marathon through this campaign. With your help, we’ve been able to begin talking about projects outside of the day of dance marathon itself that we’re able to fund! The primary one is Run For The Kids- a brand new partnership with Team Children’s at the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation for the 2018 Dicks Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon. If you’d like to learn more about joining our marathon team (including the full marathon, half and 5k), please email email@example.com. Anyone who has legs is welcome, even if you are not a student!
Pitt Dance Marathon is also committed to being a more sustainable and environmentally friendly organization- in addition to helping fund Run For The Kids, your donation will be going towards our efforts to use only compostable materials at events throughout the year. These materials are funded for the day of dance marathon by the university, but outside of that it’s our job to purchase them. With your donation, we will be able to finish getting all of the materials needed to make our annual pancake breakfast (to be held February 18th, 2018) fully environmentally friendly.
Pitt Dance Marathon is ever grateful for your support! Please visit our facebook page or our website to learn more about our year-long efforts. If you’d like to become a PDM business partner, please contact Kaleigh at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you would like to contribute to our total fundraising goal for the year, where all funds raised go to the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation, please visit here where you can make a donation!
Again, Pitt Dance Marathon couldn’t do what it does, or be what it is, without your support. When you donate to Pitt Dance Marathon, you donate to something even bigger than supporting the families and kids receiving care at the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, you donate to the largest student run philanthropy at the University of Pittsburgh. Dance Marathon has changed my life, even though I was never treated in a Children’s Hospital. I know this is the case for countless other students at Pitt.
