UADM loves to dance—it’s our favorite way to celebrate! Fun side note, we get to dance for 13.1 hours in just 9 DAYS! (Don’t forget to register so you can join the party too!) For UADM, dancing is more than just having fun, bringing everyone together, and celebrating. We dance for a cure, a cause and For The Kids.

2. Our Miracle Families

These are the incredible people that are the driving force behind every bit of motivation that runs UADM. The laughs, smiles, hugs and friendships that have been built between our UADM staff members and each of our Miracle Families are so treasured and hold a special place in all of our hearts.

3. Children’s of Alabama

This is the place where the miracles happen! We love getting to support such an incredible foundation that shares the same values as UADM: teamwork, commitment and compassion. Together, we are in the fight to end childhood illness. Children’s of Alabama is the only free-standing pediatric hospital in Alabama, and one of the ten busiest pediatric hospitals in the nation. They put the kids, their health and well-being, and their families at the top of their priority list.

4. Some Friendly Competition

With a whole year of opportunities, we like to come up with exciting ways to fundraise FTK. Our favorite fundraising memories always go to the friendly competitions with other SEC Dance Marathon programs, like Auburn and LSU. When gameday rolls around, the competition heats up—but we truly love the sense of unity that rises when two awesome programs come together (despite whatever happens on the field) in a friendly competition For The Kids.

5. Loves

UADM loves Loves! Loves is our strongest supporter and shares the same passion as us: finding a cure for the kids. To show them some love, we have an exciting competition happening between on-campus organizations on Facebook, Venmo, and Dance Marathon Donor Drive that will run from Feb. 8-15.
