This weekend, student leaders from Pitt Dance Marathon travelled to Columbus, Ohio for this year's Dance Marathon Leadership Conference. The conference included a variety of events, aimed at both teaching student leaders how to improve their campus's dance marathon and at recognizing Dance Marathons from across the nation for their achievements.
During DMLC, we received an award for Best Special Event in recognition of the PDM Fashion Show, which we hosted for the first time in the Spring of 2016.
Children's Miracle Network also released their goal: to raise 1,000,000,000 by 2022. Though this number seems high, CMN is confident that if we all work together, it is nothing but possible.
Overall, the Dance Marathon Leadership Conference was an incredible success. Getting to spend an entire weekend surrounded by people who are 100% for the kids reminded us that together we can achieve the impossible. The Dance Marathon movement is about so much more than fundraising. It is about charity, unity, and, most importantly, the kids! This weekend was a testament to that. We cannot wait to bring everything we have learned in Columbus back to Pitt.
A huge thank you to all of the miracle families, presenters, universities, and individuals that made DMLC possible. Until next time, For The Kids!
