How can students get involved with Roarthon?

ROARTHON is a great way to be involved with one the university’s largest student organizations. Roarthon provides students with the opportunity to become part of a cause that affects the lives of thousands of children at Miami Children’s Hospital, learn the benefits of community service, networking opportunities, and enhances the overall college experience. Dance Marathon, FIU’s Roarthon is the nation’s largest collegiate philanthropy!


What is a Roarthon Dancer?
A dancer is someone who has challenged themselves to be present at the event the entire 17 hours and raises a minimum of $100 for the event. All students wishing to participate as dancers in FIU ROARTHON 2017 must be registered by the final deadline of March 25th, 2017. You will need a debit or credit card to register with your first $20 which will be deducted from your dancer total of $100.


What is a Dance Marathon Delegate?
A Roarthon delegate is the key to a student organization team’s success. As a  delegate you are the link between the steering committee and your organization. It is your responsibility as a delegate to attend delegate meetings and relay any important Roarthon updates and information to your respective organization. This provides efficiency in communication between Roarthon committee and all the student organization members who are interested in participating in DM. DM is FIU’s largest student-run philanthropy, and that is all made possible with the help of the student organizations that participate in this amazing cause. Without ROARTHON delegates, organizations would not be able to communicate as efficiently and participate as actively, all making a huge difference in many children’s lives.


What is a Fundraiser?
A fundraiser is a student, alumni, or community member who wants to be involved with FIU ROARTHON but is not able to participate in the event. Fundraising through Roarthon at FIU  is a simple way to help out and give back to this great cause.
