25 years of ‘For The Kids’

The 25th annual University of Oklahoma Dance Marathon (OUDM) took place on March 6, 2021 at the Thurman J White Forum building on the OU campus. OU Dance Marathon was founded in 1996, and in the years since has become a Top 10 Dance Marathon in the country.
Hosted by the University of Oklahoma’s Campus Activities Council and Student Life, OU students pivoted their event this year and held a COVID safe Dance Marathon in support of Oklahoma‘s kids and in celebration of their year-long fundraising efforts. All Miracle Families were invited to attend in person or virtually, and both the families and students spent the day dancing and participating in fundraising activities, all while staying in groups of 20 people or less. If students weren’t comfortable attending in person, a completely virtual experience was offered to them.

On Sunday, March 7, OUDM students announced that they had raised a total of $775,268.21 for Children‘s Hospital Foundation, helping us further our mission of ensuring every child receives the best care possible, right here in Oklahoma.
Thank you to the students, alumni, and faculty for continuing to go above and beyond for the kids of Oklahoma!
