My name is Mel Neal and I am ecstatic to be the External Director of Dance Marathon at the University of Michigan for the 2017-2018 year. Dance Marathon at the University of Michigan (DMUM) raises funds and awareness for pediatric rehabilitation programs at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital in Ann Arbor and Beaumont Children’s in Royal Oak, MI. Dance Marathon at the University of Michigan is the largest student-run non-profit organization in Michigan.
As a freshman at Michigan, DMUM was the first organization I wanted to sign up for because I realized by joining I could support kids, impact the community, and raise awareness around pediatric rehabilitation programs and disability. Over the past few years, DMUM has become not just an organization, but also a family to me. Now in my senior year, I am truly honored to continue my involvement in an organization that is so dear to my heart and has made me the person I am today. Please consider making a donation for the kids (FTK) today!
