P-H-M schools have a long standing tradition of holding various fundraising activities for Riley (click to learn more about the Bike-a-Thon fundraiser Madison Elementary held in October). At Penn, the annual Dodgeball Tournament has benefited Riley; and in 2018, Penn’s Dance Marathon for Riley raised more than $25,000!
