Dance marathon reaches fundraising goal | News
ADA, Mich. (WZZM)- The largest dance marathon in the state is now considered a success.
More than 100 students from Forest Hills Northern High School literally danced the night away to raise money for the Helen DeVos Children's Hospital. Starting Friday evening, the students danced for 24 hours, with the support of volunteers providing water, back rubs and motivation.
"We know it's hard to dance for 24 hours, we know it's hard to stand, but we also know that it's nothing in comparison to what these kids go through every day," explained teacher advisor Tiffany Ghent.
The principal of Forest Hills Northern also took part in the dance marathon, along with some staff members.
Officials told us Saturday that they reached their goal of $40,000.
