Community invited to Dance Marathon kick-off event on Jan. 20

Join Fayetteville-Manlius High School students at the community-wide Dance Marathon kick-off event during halftime of the boys varsity basketball game on Friday, Jan. 20.

The matchup between F-M and Liverpool is set to begin at 7 p.m. in the House I gymnasium at F-M High School, located at 8201 East Seneca Turnpike, Manlius. All students, families and community members are invited to attend.

During the halftime event, F-M students will speak about the impact the F-M fundraiser has on Camp Good Days and Special Times, a not-for-profit organization that provides a summer camp experience to children whose lives have been affected by a cancer diagnosis or sickle cell anemia.

14 high school students dressed in white shirts and colored bandanas pose on picnic tables outside.
2023 Dance Marathon MCs (masters of ceremonies) will work together in pairs, each represented by a solid color.

Dance Marathon MCs (masters of ceremonies) will also perform a dance routine, which is choreographed by F-M students.

This annual Dance Marathon fundraiser, which this year will be held on March 18, typically raises more than $100,000 for Camp Good Days and Special Times. Each participant is required to fundraise at least $70.

F-M has been participating in Dance Marathon and challenging students’ endurance with this six-hour event for more than 30 years.
