UCLA Dance Marathon
Los Angeles, California
Students at UCLA have rallied together to put on a 26-hour annual dance-a-thon to acknowledge the battle of children suffering from AIDS by fighting their own personal battle: staying on their feet for the entire duration of the event. With thousands of participants every year, live music, and appearances by celebrities and activists alike, Dance Marathon has been able to raise over 3.5 million dollars in its 12 year history, benefiting HIV-positive children around the world. Our proceeds benefit the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation – the largest pediatric AIDS foundation in the United States – and Project Kindle and One Heartland, two free summer camp programs that provide HIV-affected children with the experience of a lifetime. In 2013 alone, Dance Marathon united over 3,000 supporters and grossed $475,000 in financial contributions. Moreover, since its inception in 2002, DM has sought to empower the UCLA campus community in the fight against pediatric AIDS, raising awareness about the importance of HIV education and testing and helping young people make a difference in halting the spread of this critical, preventable disease.
