North High School in 8 Mile hosted its seventh annual ‘Children’s Miracle Network Dance Marathon’ last night.
High schools and colleges across the nation participate in dance marathons to raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network, and North High has been hosting this event for seven years now.
The students set up various activities like cornhole, basketball, frisbee, and Just Dance, and they also had musical chairs, limbo, raffles, and a pie eating contest, which students could sign up for by paying.
All the money raised will go towards Unity Point Health St Luke’s, a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.
The students raised a total of $15,054, surpassing their goal of $15,000.
The students’ collective mindset and desire to make an impact for their community locally was commendable, and it’s heartening to see how much they care about such an important cause.
