Dance Marathon Returns To WHS March 6

It is Dance Marathon time again at Wellington High School. On Friday, March 6 from 4 to 11 p.m., approximately 100 students will dance to raise money for Shands Children’s Hospital at the University of Florida and the Children’s Miracle Network hospitals.

Dance Marathon began as a college fundraiser, and has percolated to the high school level. Wellington High School joined the movement to raise money for sick children in 2013, raising almost $12,000 last year, which was combined with the money raised by the students at UF who participated in Dance Marathon.

Students will be dancing the evening away in the high school gym, and do not need to register. Interested students just need to show up to participate in the event.

Donations will be accepted through checks made out to the school, or through the school’s online page,
