Riekes Material Handling Donates to the University of Iowa’s Dance Marathon

Riekes Material Handling donated $5,000 to the University of Iowa’s Dance Marathon. The Dance Marathon provides emotional and financial support for pediatric oncology and bone marrow transplant patients and their families treated at the University of Iowa Children’s Hospital.

“We are passionate about helping provide support to youth cancer victims and their families,” said Tom Howard, President of Riekes Material Handling. “We are committed to this event and in helping the children and their families that have benefitted from the Marathon in the past several years.”

“The primary goal of this marathon is to raise additional money for children with cancer and to educate the community about the struggles and triumphs of these little warriors,” said Allie Howard, 2013 dancer for the Big Event. “Since 1994, this event has taken place to celebrate the children survivors and remember the children who have passed away throughout the year.

Riekes Material Handling has been supporting the Dance Marathon since 2004.
