    University of Alabama Dance Marathon

    UADM is more than just a campus organization. It is a student run philanthropy that raises money for Children’s of Alabama hospital. We unite the Tuscaloosa and Birmingham communities to raise funds for the kids at Children’s. Without the support and help from team members, committee members, friends and families, we wouldn’t be able to provide the funding Children’s so desperately needs, where life-saving treatments are offered to patients, no matter the family’s ability to pay for their child’s healthcare.

    Beyond that, with more than 37,000 people in the UA community, we understand that it can be hard to find your niche; that’s why we seek to help students find their place on campus. Whether it be meeting a new group of friends on a committee, coming to events and having the time of your life, making memories and creating traditions, UADM isn’t just about helping families, it’s about creating your own family of friends in college.
