How do I register?
Click on the “Register Now!” button. It will take you directly to our fundraising website where you can register, set your goal, and create your own fundraising page (donor drive).
What is Donor Drive?
Donor Drive is the online platform that Dance Marathon uses to collect donations for their events nationwide. It is a secure and easy way to fund-raise towards your personal goal!
Why should I sign up for Dance Marathon?
We are glad that you asked! Dance Marathon is often the thing that sticks out for most people as the highlight of their year. Where else can you raise money for your local hospital by dancing and having so much fun that you won't want to leave?
I don't dance.
That's okay! It isn't a question, but that's okay. Most of the people who attend DM don't dance. It's not about dancing, it's about raising money and awareness for the kids. We promise you, there will be plenty of fun for you other than dancing!
How can I be on the team?
When you register yourself for the event, you will be able to either create or join a team. If you are part of other campus organizations, this is a great opportunity to work together towards a team fundraising goal!
What if I don't reach my goal?
That's okay! Set an attainable goal that will push you a little bit. If you don't reach it, that's totally fine! Just be sure to raise at least $50 to get in the door. Your $50 includes food, drinks, and your t-shirt - not to mention the best night of your life! We will be posting fundraising tips throughout the year to help everybody reach their goals!
Why am I being asked to sign up so early?
The earlier you sign up, the more you will be able to raise and the more you will learn about DM and St. Luke’s Children’s!
What if somebody wants to donate with a check?
That's great! Tell them thank you and to have them write the check out to "St. Luke's Health Foundation." On the memo line, have them write "Boise State Dance Marathon."
