WHS Dance Marathon Returns On 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 the 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. WHS 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 dance in the high school gym. Advanced registration is not necessary. Interested students just need to show up.

Donations will be accepted through checks made out to the school or through the school’s online page. Visit www.events.dancemarathon.com, scroll to the bottom of the page, click “view more,” and search for upcoming Dance Marathon events in Florida.
