Plymouth High School hosts annual dance marathon
PLYMOUTH, Ind. – Students at Plymouth High School got out of class early on Friday to participate in an annual dance marathon that raises money for Riley Children’s Hospital in Indianapolis.
The event has been going on for nine years at Plymouth High and over $231,000 has been raised in that time.
This year over $30,000 was raised.
“I think this is so cool that like, they recognize that Riley is such a great place, and I think it’s awesome that they’re able to recognize that Riley is helping those kids that do have conditions and do have different things — diseases — that they can’t help,” Ashley Kaufman said, who is a Plymouth student and a patient at Riley Children’s Hospital.
The marathon lasted for several hours and young students got a chance to participate in a variety of games and activities.
