Shake It for Charity: Dance Marathon


   On Saturday, March 23 the Student Council will be hosting a Dance Marathon in support of Riley Children’s Hospital from 1 pm to 5 pm.
   “This year we’re trying to get as many people as possible to go,” student body president Mandy Carroll said. “By raising money, we could save someone’s life.”
   The fundraiser operates much like the Race for the Cure, allowing students to register to dance and do a variety of other activities, including ping pong, crafts, basketball, cornhole, a bouncehouse and a photobooth. Participants are required to raise $20 each for the Riley Children’s Hospital.
   “We would like to raise over $2000 and we are already almost halfway there,” media specialist Barbara Goddard said.
   This year, the Dance Marathon will officially be connected to the Riley Children’s Hospital for the first time. 
   “We are excited to have (MHS prom DJ) Heartbreak DJ at the marathon,” Goddard said. “We have the same DJ, but it’s a lot cheaper than Prom.”
MHS will have Spirit Days next week for the Dance Marathon.
   “It’s more about hearing stories from Riley Children’s Hospital families and being inspired than dancing,” Carroll said. “It’s about making a difference.”
