Dance Marathon is the largest philanthropy organization on campus. It lasts 12 full hours and consists of performers, free dance, and education about HIV/AIDS.

All proceeds are donated to the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation. The foundation's goal is to educate and reduce the the transmission and cases of pediatric AIDS worldwide. They have numerous global projects benefiting millions. Donations can be made at bwdm.up4thefight.org.

In its 15th year, Dance Marathon is setting new records and making large strides. With a record number of dancers, money raised nearing last year's total, and numerous sponsors, this year is looking like one to be remembered. This year's theme is "How many takes till we get to zero?" which refers to zero cases of mother to child HIV/AIDS transmission and zero cases of children diagnosed with HIV everyday. The public is invited to come and encourage the dancers and there will also be a basket raffle.
