Dance Marathon: Dance Your Tail Off

This Friday, Feb. 17, the high school will host a dance marathon, held in the gym on from 7 p.m to 11 p.m. The event is sponsored by Student Senate, who has teamed up with West High School and UNI to raise money for the University of Iowa Children’s Hospital. UNI has held a dance marathon for this cause for the past few years; teaming up with two other high schools is something new. West High School has held their dance marathon already, raising $4,000. The three schools will combine all the money raised and donate it to the hospital.

Tickets will be sold during lunch and after school in the lobby. They will be available for $10, and if bought with a dance marathon T-shirt, $15.
At the door, tickets will remain $10, but shirts will be sold for $10 separately. However, if pledges of $10 or more are raised, they will be free.

The dance marathon is for only CFHS students. Teachers can also pledge money, but some are also donating their time by chaperoning the different events.

The dance will take place on one side of the gym; on the other, there will be dodgegball games, 9-square and even a “casino” room. There will be a sign up sheet in the activities office for the different dodgeball teams, and there is a music request sheet in the counseling office.

“Because of the formal being canceled, I think people want something to do, and if enough people turn out, it’s going to be really fun,” junior Rachel Nurse said.

“I’m hoping for a great turnout and a lot of fun for those who come. There will be a lot of different things to do, and, overall, it’s just a great cause,” Student Senate adviser Erin Gardner said.
