Mar 10, 2020

IUPUI’s 19th annual Jagathon broke its fundraising record, with $607,870.25 raised for Riley Hospital for Children on March 7. The student-run organization held a 15-hour celebration throughout a Campus Center filled with dancing, interactive games, cause-connected ceremonies, and visiting with the affected children and families.

The money raised by Jagathon supports the Herman B Wells Center for Pediatric Research at Riley Hospital for Children, Indiana’s only Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.

Check out some of the scenes from the inspiring event, captured by Indiana University photographer Liz Kaye.
