Now in its 40th year, Northwestern University Dance Marathon (NUDM) is one of the largest student-run philanthropies in the nation. Since it was founded in 1975, Northwestern students have raised more than $14 million for more than thirty different beneficiaries.
This year, NUDM is proud to partner with Team Joseph and the Evanston Community Foundation as its primary and secondary beneficiaries respectively.
Joseph Penrod was diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy when he was 5 years old. Team Joseph is a non-profit organization whose mission is to aggressively fund cutting edge research to find a treatment or cure for Duchenne muscular dystrophy. NUDM 2014 is thrilled to support this cause in conjunction with Team Joseph.
