From Amy Dickman-
60 Miles to Save a Child~
October 23rd Riley Hospital for Children à Bloomington
On Saturday, October 23rd, IUDM will be hosting its 5th annual Torch Ride, a cycling event, from Riley Hospital for Children to Bloomington. Each year this event is a centerpiece of the IUDM experience, serving as a ride in honor of Ashley Crouse, an IUDM Vice President who passed away in a car accident on campus in 2005. Her brother, Charlie Crouse, will lead the pack of cyclists from Riley Hospital to Bloomington, while carrying a torch that will ultimately be placed at the marathon as a reminder of Ashley's legacy and dedication to IU Dance Marathon and the children at Riley.
IUDM works year-round to raise funds and awareness for Riley Hospital for Children. Since it began, the IU Dance Marathon has raised more than $8.5 million for Riley Hospital for Children, which built and continues to support the Ryan White Infectious Disease Center.
