Leaders from the Dance Marathon at LSU organization also came to support the kickoff for the Walmart and Sam’s Club campaign.  Thanks to the support from Walmart and Sam’s Club over the past 5 years, Dance Marathon has raised tens of thousands of dollars in front of local stores, which has also helped build awareness for the program, which is now the largest student-led philanthropic organization at Louisiana State University.  Since 2013, Dance Marathon at LSU has raised over $ Million for Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital.
