Auburn University Dance Marathon Raises Over $275K for The Children’s Hospital at Piedmont Columbus Regional

Auburn, Ala. (Feb. 20, 2023)— The 2023 Auburn University Dance Marathon (AUDM) held on Feb. 18 raised a total of $276,237 for The Children's Hospital at Piedmont Columbus Regional, the area's Children's Miracle Network hospital. AUDM has raised over $3.3 million since they started doing the annual dance marathon 12 years ago.

The funds raised at this year’s event will be used to help Piedmont Columbus Regional continue to transform healthcare for the children of the Chattahoochee Valley— ensuring they can receive care close to home with family and loved ones by their side.

“AUDM is such a special program because these college students work tirelessly throughout the year to help us make a positive difference in every life we touch," said Jessie Brown, Children's Miracle Network Officer with the Piedmont Columbus Regional Foundation. "Hundreds of students came together and not only raised an incredible amount of funds but also showered our Miracle Families with so much love and support. We can’t wait to continue to see what these students accomplish for our local kids for years to come.” 

Auburn University students host events throughout the school year to raise funds and awareness, culminating in the main event. Current students as well as alumni danced and had a good time while raising money for a good cause.

The main event, held at Auburn University’s Student Activities Center, included remarks from Piedmont Columbus Regional hospital and foundation staff, Miracle Family testimonials, dance lessons, costumes, arcade games, and more. The students had fun while putting their hearts and souls into making a positive difference in the lives of children who are hospitalized. 

The Piedmont Columbus Regional Foundation will be hosting an appreciation banquet for the students later this week.
