WHS Gears Up For Dance Marathon

Wellington High School held assemblies Thursday, Jan. 7 and Friday, Jan. 8 to promote its Dance Marathon event, which will take place March 11. The school hopes to raise $25,000, doubling last year’s fundraising efforts and breaking the University of Florida’s Dance Marathon high school record. Donations go to help sick children at Shands Children’s Hospital in Gainesville. The star of the day was 9-year-old Zander Wyant, who has undergone multiple surgeries, starting when he was just a day old. With the help of Shands Children’s Hospital and Dance Marathon, he is doing well and having a great time being one of the “Miracle Children.”
