...You'll miss the magic of the good old days

For The University of Alabama Dance Marathon Miracle Makers, the journey does not have to end at graduation. UADM is a life-long commitment to philanthropic service and leadership. Every year, UADM has continuously grown because of the growing support that it receives from the university and its student body. As of this year, you too can help make a difference in the lives of children. A donation to UADM is not only impacting the lives of children and the families affected by pediatric illness, alumni supporters are exemplifying to UA students what it is like to “Be the Spark” and to stand for those who can’t.

What started in a small gym in the Rec Center five years ago and raising $14,952.18, has flourished into over $200,000 raised for Children’s of Alabama, becoming the largest student-run philanthropy on campus. While UADM has grown to incredible heights, our mission and goals remain the same- to conquer pediatric illness. Whether you have experienced UADM in the Rec Center, or Bryant Conference Center this past year, or have never even experienced UADM, you are a part of a program that is quickly becoming a popular tradition on campus. Together, as the Crimson Tide Community we will continue to make a difference in the lives of children.
