The First ever Dance- A-Thon will be taking place on  April 13th, from 7pm to 11pm at West Morris Central. This is a four hour event where students will dance and participate in many other activities such as cornhole, can jam, limbo, tug-of-war, along with many other things to keep everyone busy for the whole event. If you don’t want to dance, that’s totally fine. There will be plenty of other things to do. This event is hosted by Highlanders for Humanity for Sarah’s Fight for Hope. This event will be raising funds for childhood cancer research.

We are having a Dance-A-Thon to raise money and raise awareness and provide emotional support for families and children. The funds from this dance marathon, will be given towards Sarah’s Fight for HOPE Foundation’s mission to support the needs of children with cancer.   


The WMC students Thon so no parent has to hear the words “their child has cancer” and to make a difference in a child’s life.


The upcoming week WMC students can participate in events to be involved before the dance marathon. Also during this week if you are going to the Dance-A-Thon, you can be part of the flash mob dance. You can come learn the dance in the auditorium during lunch on Tuesday, 4/10, Thursday 4/12, Friday 4/13.
