Our Campaign

Live The Legacy

150 years of Purdue University. 15 years of Purdue University Dance Marathon. Hundreds of Thousands of Boilermakers. In 2019, Purdue University Dance Marathon will "Live The Legacy".

We think back to the Boilermakers, like Neil Armstrong, who shook the world with their bravery and innovation. We think of Boilermakers, like Tyler Trent, who showed us what it means to be a Purdue fan, what it means to have a purpose and what it means to be grateful. We think about Boilermakers, like Travis Stoutenborough, who started PUDM in honor of a friend lost too soon. We think of the Boilermakers of the future. What will they accomplish? How will they make a difference?

The research being done at Riley gives kids a fighting chance. We may not get to see all the seeds we sow. We may not get to see the impact of our funding in a week, in a year, or in a lifetime, but we keep the hope that it will make a difference.

"Legacy. What is a legacy? It's planting seeds in a garden you never get to see?" What kind of legacy will you leave?
