History of DM at San Diego State
Dance Marathon at SDSU was founded by San Diego State Alum Emily Carper in the fall of 2014 as a fundraiser for greek week. Emily was inspired by another dance marathon program and wanted to bring the movement to SDSU. Dance Marathon's first board had 28 members and had an ambitious goal of putting on the first event in the spring of 2015. The event was planned in just three short months and raised over $40,000 #ForTheKids.
