Dear Dancers,


Participating in the Special Olympics Minnesota Unified Dance Marathon is an integral part of the Unified Movement. It is an opportunity to help change the world, while having the best day ever with your friends and classmates. As a dancer, you will be expected to fundraise at least $50 for Special Olympics Minnesota Athletes. We help you raise the funds with tips, tricks, and tools to make it easy to raise the minimum and go above and beyond to earn our amazing incentives (see here!). This six hour event at the Mall of America is truly jam-packed with fun – performances, celebrity appearances, free food, prizes, and of course, dancing! This is a dance party with a purpose. It is the most Inclusive Dance Party in the State of Minnesota. It is a dance party where everyone is welcome, and where everyone is celebrated because of their differences and abilities. It is a dance party that is helping to change our communities, and create a world where everyone is included. A world where everyone belongs.


When you register, you will be able to select a team or register as an individual. Encourage your friends to sign up as well so you can go together and meet new friends at the event! Throughout the fundraising process, you will be contacted by Morale Captains who will share information on how to fundraise. They will be your go-to guys and gals throughout the year for any questions or concerns and will send you emails with updates and tips over the next few months.


Thank you for taking the time to register and join the third annual Unified Dance Marathon. We cannot wait to celebrate with you on November 18, and cannot thank you enough for the contribution you are making to the Unified Movement. Thanks again!


Dance Unified, Live Unified,
