The University of Iowa Dance Marathon (UIDM) is an organization that many of our sisters hold close to their hearts. On October 7th, 2018, 18 of our sisters took on the streets of Chicago as charity runners for UIDM. Each participant running the Chicago Marathon for UIDM had to raise $750 to run the marathon and will have to raise a total of $1,000 to participate in the big event in February of 2019. For some of our sisters, this was their first ever marathon, but many of our sisters ran the Chicago Marathon for a second or even a third time for UIDM! Read below to hear each runner’s story on why they chose to run 26.2 miles.
