Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health is the only

Children’s Miracle Network Hospital in the state of

Indiana, which sets them apart from all other children’s

hospitals in our state. As Indiana’s first and only

comprehensive hospital dedicated exclusively to the

care of children, Riley Hospital for Children has provided

hope and healing to children and their families for over

ninety years. Since opening its doors in 1924, Riley

Hospital has focused on family-centered pediatric care

for any child who needs it. Riley is also home to the

state's largest pediatric research program at the Well’s

Center for Pediatric Research, where physician-scientists

vigorously work to bring new cures to the bedside.  


Riley Hospital and the Wells Center for Pediatric Research depend on the generosity of donors to support vital clinical programs and pediatric medical research. Each year Riley serves over 300,000 inpatients and outpatients from across Indiana, the nation and the world. From simple care associated with the health and wellness of children, to the most critically-ill children and medically complex cases, Riley is the leader for pediatric care in the state and the region.


By contributing to Indiana University Dance Marathon, you are enabling innovative people, programs and technologies to translate new ideas into the best possible support for families.  This support will help Riley provide hope through pediatric research that is revolutionizing treatments and seeking cures for conditions such as cancer, diabetes and asthma.
