We’ve all been there before: losing steam as you feel the daunting pressure to reach the fundraising finish line that doesn’t seem in sight, staying up all hours of the night working on a new DM project or figuring out more ways to help the cause, missing hanging out time with your friends as you go to another DM event. And although sometimes these tasks make us doubt our love and passion for an organization that’s so dear to our hearts, nothing compares to the smiles on our kiddos faces as we help them fight their fearless battle. If you’re ever giving up on or losing hope in all the work you do for Dance Marathon, look to these reminders and in the hearts of the kiddos we help to serve as your motivation to just keep swimming.


  • Because we all know nothing compares to greeting our Dance Marathon family after a long summer away from our favorite people.



  • We feel our hearts get giddy as our morale captains compliments us on our fundraising efforts.

  • Whenever we’re having a bad day, we know we can go to a DM meeting or event and feel our spirits lift right back up.

  • We know no matter how much of a pain in the butt we’re being to our DM group, they’ll still love us and support us no matter what.



  • Whenever our non-DM friends are getting annoyed with us constantly obsessing over our kiddos we can go to our DM besties and they’ll completely get where we’re coming from and want to obsess with us.



  • We know our Dance Marathon friends will always be there for us and point us in the right direction.



  • There are always people to help cheer you up and motivate you to be the best version of yourself.



  • You know no matter what kind of mood you’re in, you can go in to a Dance Marathon meeting and find someone looking at you the way Darla looks at new fish.

  • We all know everything is going to be okay, because we’re all in this together.

  • And most importantly, we all know all we have to do to make it through is to…

just keep swimming
