IUPUI's Dance Marathon, also known as Jagathon, is a 15-hour dance marathon that takes place at IUPUI within the spring semester each year with the purpose of raising both funds and awareness for pediatric research. We play games, spend time with the kids and families we support, laugh, cry, and even do a bit of dancing. Jagathon is a 365-day commitment to raising money for the Herman B. Wells Center at Riley Hospital for Children. With the goal of raising money for Riley comes our capstone event to celebrate our hard work during Dance Marathon Weekend. In 2021, we raised over $363,000 for the kids despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic! Over the past twenty years, Jagathon has raised over $2,848,000 for the kids.
This year at Jagathon, we will be standing in solidarity for 15-hours for the kids at Riley Hospital for Children. Jagathon will be taking place from 12 PM March 26th to 3 AM March 27th. Please join our efforts by making a donation or by participating in our marathon.

We need you to be a hero for local kids! Join the movement or make a donation today.
