Not letting the pandemic hold them back, Kean's Greek Senate will be hosting Kean's Dance Marathon (KDM) online, yet again.

The event will be held Friday, April 16 from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. on the Greek Senate's Instagram @kdm_ftk.

KDM is an annual effort that raises awareness and funds for the kids at Children's Specialized Hospital of New Jersey. Being the first program in New Jersey to raise over $50,000 for the kids. Year after year, this event continues to bring awareness and support for those at the Children's Specialized Hospital.

Gabriella Lapointe, the graduate intern for Greek Affairs, informs students that, "KDM this year will be 100% virtual via Instagram live."

They encourage students to join them to celebrate year-long fundraising and will be revealing the total amount fundraised at the end of the event.

Last year, the Greek Senate succeeded in a seamless transition online which will continue again this year to give students the opportunity to come together and celebrate.

For more information students and staff can check out the Greek Senate's Cougar Link or email them at with any questions about the event.
