What is GWDM?

GWDM is the largest student-run philanthropy at the George Washington University, in only our sixth year. We are a year-round movement benefiting Children’s National Health System, our local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. Every dollar we raise goes directly to local patients and families. GWDM has the privilege of raising funds to care for these children in our local community. We pride ourselves on our substantial campus and community growth, uniting hundreds of students for this amazing cause in the four years since we began at GW.

As we move forward, we continue to focus on the notion that every single day, we are helping to make a difference in the lives of local kids. We are one generation fighting for the next. Simply stated, we stand for those who can’t; we are For the Kids.

  • TerpThon at The University of Maryland (UMD)
  • GW Dance Marathon at The George Washington University (GW)
  • EagleThon at American University (AU)
  • MaryThon at Marymount University (MU)
