The purpose of the Dance Marathon Alumni Group (DMAG) is to engage and connect alumni who support University of Iowa Dance Marathon's mission. Past Dance Marathon participants who fundraised and danced For The Kids (FTK) at any point in UIDM's history are encouraged to get involved with DMAG. Dance Marathon alumni make UI Dance Marathon stronger and continue to support pediatric cancer patients and their families at University of Iowa Stead Family Children's Hospital.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Big Event will be held virtually February 26-27, 2021.
All alumni, as well as their friends and family, are encouraged to participate in at least one event during Big Event weekend. For security purposes, you are required to register for virtual events and will receive a secure link after you register.
Help a dancer hit their fundraising goal! Find a dancer on our real-time dancer page and click the "Past UIDM Participant" checkbox during checkout. Each person on this list has raised at least $250 but needs some support to reach their goals.
