DUHAWK DM EVENTS

Duhawk DM is a year-long event.  We sponsor numerous programs throughout the year that raises both money and awareness for the University of Iowa Children’s Hospital and the Children’s Miracle Network. 
  • Color FT5K: Join us for our annual family friendly 5K Walk/Run, but now with color! Come run/walk with us around the Mississippi at Chaplain Schmitt Island and get covered with color! Run starts at 10:00AM and registration begins at 9:00AM. REGISTER HERE!  Questions? Contact Claira Sieverding at Claira.Sieverding@loras.edu.
  •  Mini Marathons:  Mini Dance Marathons are a great way to get young people of the Dubuque Community involved in a great cause! Mini’s are hosted by the area schools with the help of the Loras College Students involved in Dance Marathon. DuhawkDM Students work with schools’ staff to learn the best way to fundraise and host a Mini at their institution in order to ensure its success! These Students also do all the organizing and facilitating throughout the event. The following are just a couple of ways that Dubuque Area Community Schools have hosted Mini DM’s in the past:  If you have questions, please contact either Kelsey Callahan at Kelsey.Callahan@loras.edu or Emma Walsh at Emma.Walsh@loras.edu
