What to know about #RUDM2017

Why should I get involved with Rutgers University Dance Marathon?

RUDM is the largest student run philanthropic event in the state of New Jersey. Since 1999, RUDM has raised over $5.8 million for Embrace Kids Foundation. Located in New Brunswick, Embrace Kids Foundation exists to lighten the burden and improve the quality of life for children with cancer, sickle cell and other serious disorders in the New Jersey/New York City metropolitan area.

When is RUDM 2017 taking place?

Rutgers Dance Marathon is taking place on Friday, March 31 from 6:00 PM-6:00 AM and Saturday, April 1 from 9:00 AM-9:00 PM. Register today.

  • Friday session: check-in on Friday at 4:30 PM, session concludes Saturday, 6:00 AM
  • Saturday session: check-in on Saturday at 7:30 AM, session concludes Saturday, 9:00 PM
  • Closing Ceremonies (open to Friday and Saturday session Dancers) begins Saturday, 8:00 PM

Who can participate?

RUDM is open to all Rutgers community members (undergraduate and graduate students, staff, and alumni).

Do I have to be a member of an organization to participate?

No! It’s easy to find someone to dance with whether it be one of your floor-mates or a friend from class. If you’re not part of an organization, there are teams like Carpe DM! that students can join specifically for marathon weekend. RUDM is something every single person at Rutgers can be a part of!
