Riley Hospital for Children has become the charitable organization that the Pre Professional Society has opted to support through various fundraisers and events throughout the academic year. Riley is a pillar in communities all over Indiana as it is the only hospital in the state that treats children exclusively and with top of the line care. Riley is also a main component of the academic experience of Indiana University School of Medicine as the children’s hospital is located on the same campus and medical students rotate through Riley on a regular basis.
Last year, Saint Mary’s Dance Marathon and the Pre-Professional Society of Notre Dame co-hosted a Dance Marathon to benefit Riley Hospital for Children. The Dance Marathon is a 12 hour long event where the people of the Saint Mary’s and Notre Dame community stand in solidarity for the children of Indiana. The proceeds that are raised from the event and from various fundraisers throughout the year go to benefit Riley Children’s Foundation of Indianapolis with the total amount of the donation revealed at the end of the Dance Marathon.
We look forward to another great year working in conjunction with Saint Mary’s Dance Marathon to raise money for Riley Children’s Foundation and to support the families who depend on Riley Hospital.
