What is Dance Marathon?
Dance Marathon is the final fundraising event in Fayetteville-Manlius High School students' efforts to raise money for Camp Good Days and Special Times. For several months, students organize several events for the not-for-profit organization, culminating in Dance Marathon.
Dance Marathon is a 12-hour dance held at F-M High School that includes games, prizes, performances and more. Students must fundraise at least $50 to attend the dance, but many go far beyond the minimum.
All event proceeds are donated to Camp Good Days. The money helps send children affected by cancer to a week of carefree fun at the camp where they can relax and enjoy themselves.
Camp Good Days is a chance for children dealing with incredible challenges such as disease and death to have the light-hearted, fun-filled childhood they deserve.
Because Dance Marathon raises more than $100,000 each year, children can attend Camp Good Days completely free of charge.
