What is DRMD?

Deep Run Marathon Dance, or DRMD, is a 27 hour dance that has been running for 12 years at Deep Run High School. The dances raises money for 12 charities each year in the Richmond community. The dance is planned by a committed group of students where they pick the beneficiaries, attend fundraisers, and set up the dance. 2018 is the last year of the dance because the director chose to end it to be able to spend more time with her family. However, the dance has made a lasting impact on students, parents, recipients, sponsors, and the rest of the community.

Words from the Director, Kathleen Kern:

Sometimes in life we are faced with decisions that may feel unbearable….. Ending my involvement in Marathon Dance was one of the toughest decisions I have ever had to make.  I poured my heart and soul into this event for 12 years and couldn’t have been more proud of the impact that it had on the students, parents, and beneficiaries.  Although I know in my heart that this was the best decision for myself and my family, I will miss DRMD more than one can imagine.  Thank you to those who shared in this journey with me… I am eternally grateful for the experience of “The Marathon!”
