The Dance Marathon at SDSU Executive Board is honored to introduce the

Madison GeorgineTaylor Award 

Madison Taylor

Madison Georgine Taylor fought cancer three different times with extraordinary joy, resilience, and courage. On October 15, 2017, Madi took her last breath, yet her impact will truly continue forever. In her short 14 years on Earth, Madi had a deeper impact than most people have in a lifetime. At her celebration of life, Josh Miranda, a close family friend, beautifully sang "She loved and she fought and she danced until the end." Madi daily inspires each member of the executive board to put their whole heart into loving and serving others.


She is our "why", and the reason we dance.


The Madison Taylor Award was created as a powerful reminder that hope and healing can emerge from heartbreak. This prestigious award will be given to the dancer who truly embodies the same joy, resilience, and courage Madi lived each moment with. Our vision is that this award will inspire every dancer to live out Madi's beautiful legacy.
