Auburn Dance Marathon, or AUDM, took home two top awards at the 2017 Dance Marathon Leadership Conference hosted at the University of Maryland.

Morgan Maddox, a sophomore majoring in history who serves on the AUDM Sponsorship Committee, was named the top individual fundraiser in the country and received the inaugural Delta Air Lines Keep Climbing Award for raising more than $37,000.

AUDM was also awarded Best Digital Media for effectively utilizing their website, local television news stations, online publications and graphics to increase awareness about Auburn Dance Marathon.

At the conference, Auburn competed against 183 schools and universities.

In 2017, AUDM raised $541,832 to directly benefit the Children’s Hospital at Midtown Medical Center at Columbus Regional Health in Georgia.

Now in its sixth year, AUDM has raised more than $1.5 million total for the Children’s Miracle Network.
