The Pediatric AIDS Coalition at UCLA (PAC) presents Dance Marathon 2015: RISE! Join us as we acknowledge the battle of children suffering from AIDS by fighting our own personal battle: staying on your feet for 26 hours to literally take a stand against pediatric HIV/AIDS.
With thousands of participants, live music, and appearances by celebrities and activists alike, Dance Marathon has raised almost $4 million in its thirteen year history benefiting HIV-affected children around the world. DM aims to empower the UCLA campus community in the fight against pediatric AIDS by raising awareness about the importance of HIV education and testing, and by helping young people make a difference in halting the spread of this critical, preventable disease.
On April 18th-19th 2015, we look forward to another monumental weekend of campus unity, entertainment, energy, and education, where we stand for our cause -- for the kids and for a cure. Register today!

DM is for the dancers! Join the 7,000+ UCLA students who have completed the challenge of staying standing for the entire 26 hours, literally taking a stand in the fight against Pediatric HIV/AIDS. Dancers have the opportunity to meet our beneficiaries, dance with friends, and be a part of a life-changing event. We have 14 Dancer Captains who assist with fundraising and are here to guide and support you every step of the way.
Dancers commit to fundraising $260 for our beneficiaries. Aside from a life-changing experience, the $260 you fundraise includes five meals, a dancer t-shirt, and a box stuffed with goodies from our corporate sponsors. Register here!
