Family Relations Committee

The Family Relations Committee is the “heart” of Dance Marathon. You will work directly with kiddos and families that have been treated or are currently being treated at the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital, our local Children’s Miracle Network hospital. Each week you will be expected to attend an hour-long meeting, help coordinate monthly family events, and help out families when needed whether that be through babysitting, or attending kiddo events. During the Big Event, you will be assigned a family to guide and have fun with throughout the day! You are also expected to help make decorations for the Family Room at the Big Event, set up for the Big Event the day before, and help cleanup the morning after. The Family Relations Committee can be time-consuming, but it is incredibly rewarding! You will have the opportunity to form personal connections with our families and kiddos, and get to know exactly why we dance and who we dance for!

Applications are due via email by Sunday, September 20th @ 11:59 PM.

Interviews will be conducted Monday, September 21st through Thursday, September 24th.
