• 2020 7th Annual CCA Mini Dance Marathon

HELP US MEET OUR 2020 GOAL OF $5,000

  • Hey CCA Community, it's time for the 7th annual Dance Marathon!

    CCA Dance Marathon is in its 7th year. It was started as a way to fulfill the required annual service project as an National Honor Society (NHS) chapter and it was a hit so we kept it going. NHS members help plan it each year. It has evolved into a popular event in the high school. Last year, at the night of the event, a parent of a senior student, who also lost her young daughter to cancer and was a Dance Marathon family, said we should present the district wide idea to the administration and that it made sense to have more young students attend. So we did present to administration this year and thankfully they agreed to pilot a couple of things to see how it went. We are hopeful we will learn how to improve it each year and include more students and families. It is important we learn to include younger kids in the district, since local students battling cancer are usually of elementary school age. The very busy NHS students and sponsor do their best to pump up the event but it helps to have everyone spread the word of this rewarding event.

  • What does dance marathon raise money for?

    Dance Marathon provides financial and emotional support to kids battling cancer and their families. The money raised pays for things like games, toys, and books for kids when they're in the hospital, wigs for those kids who lose hair, prescriptions, gas cards, restaurant cards, funeral costs if the child passes away, plus many other things.
