On April 12th, 100 kids filled the gym at Highbury School to participate in the first ever Dance-a-thon where all proceeds from this event would be given to CancerCare Manitoba.
Organized entirely by seven grade 8 students, who looked after everything from booking the DJ, reaching out to CancerCare, collecting fundraising forms, as well as running a canteen and photobooth. The event lasted four hours and was aimed at students in grades 5 to 8. At the end of the highly successful event, $5650.00 was raised and donated to CancerCare in memory of one of the organizers moms who passed away from brain cancer in February.
