Dance Marathon delivers for the kids

The CFHS Dance Marathon was this past weekend, and many students came out to play dodgeball and games and dance for the kids.

Student Senate and various leadership groups worked hard for many months, collecting donations and raising awareness about Dance Marathon. They made posters, had bake sales and collected monetary and door prize donations from various area businesses.

All of their hard work culminated on Friday night, when Cedar Falls raised $2500 for the University of Iowa Children’s Hospital. Dance Marathon has the fitting subtitle of “For the Kids,” and that is exactly the goal. The Cedar Falls Dance Marathon is a “baby” dance marathon of the UNI Dance Marathon, which also donates to the University of Iowa Children’s Hospital.

One of the most exciting things about the dance marathon was how personal it was to our high school. Cedar Falls sponsored five kids through the dance marathon, all children who had utilized the services of the University of Iowa Children’s Hospital and were somehow connected to the high school, with parents as teachers or staff.

The great turnout and work put forward for Dance Marathon shows the compassion and energy of CFHS students. With upcoming events such as the blood drive and Tiger Trot, it is important to remember that when we all come together, we can make a difference.
