FRIENDS, FAMILY, AND LOVED ONES
I am beyond excited to be participating again in the largest student-run philanthropy event at IUPUI: JAGATHON! This year, I am excited to serve in a brand new role to the Presidential Board as the Vice President of Membership. I oversee 4 Directors, including Committee Relations, Dancer Relations, Family Relations, and Recruitment.
This event has grown a LOT in the past several years. Here are some quick facts on where we've been and where we're going:
2015- 600 dancers, $100,000 raised (my first Jagathon!)
2016- 900 dancers, $141,000 raised
2017- 1,000 dancers, $351,000 raised
2018- the sky is the limit!
We are in our 16th year on campus, and have been named IUPUI's Best Student Organization for two years in a row! Additionally, Jagathon was awarded the Miracle Maker Award, an award given to one of 300+ dance marathons across the country with the highest overall fundraising and percent increase from year to year. As we continue to shatter goals and break records, we are upping the antics this year by increasing our event to 15 hours! We will be celebrating with over 1500 of my closest friends in the Campus Center on March 3rd beginning at noon.
With your help, you can help me achieve my goal of raising $5,000 by donating!!! Every single penny that you donate goes DIRECTLY to Riley Children's Hospital; none of it goes toward the actual Dance Marathon itself! And get this: if I reach my goal, I will be chopping my hair at the event on stage!!! From the bottom of my heart, every dollar is greatly appreciated.
My passion in life has always been to help people, and Jagathon has allowed to me do just that. Thank you for helping me make my dream a reality!
