For seven hours, a group of 300 teens danced to raise money for a hospital that treated relatives and friends who survived cancer or who suffer from long-term illnesses.
The Franklin Community High School students danced for their cousins, siblings, friends and neighbors who have received treatment at Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health.
The school raised more than $36,000 for the hospital in an annual dance marathon that is being called one of the most successful in the state. Other schools got involved, too. Greenwood schools gave money. Elementary and intermediate schools at Franklin donated to the high school’s dance marathon.
