Riley Children’s Foundation – Riley Dance Marathon

Project Description

Riley Dance Marathon is a multi-hour, multi-faceted fundraising event that brings students together for dancing, games, crafts, food, and fun. Participants are on their feet the entire duration of the marathon as they stand for the benefit of kids receiving treatment at Riley Children’s Hospital. However, while the event itself is lively and agile, as of spring 2016 the Dance Marathon website was still not responsive across all devices. Since this event has such a young demographic, it was especially crucial to bring the website up to date and improve usability, so Charity Dynamics worked with Riley to retrofit their existing TeamRaiser event configuration with a fully responsive wrapper.
