Upstate NY High School Dance Marathon Sets Record Again
Glens Falls High School Dance Marathon has set yet another record in money raised with the help of 815 students. Total raised is $831,191,15 beating last years total of $823,614.
Now in its 41st year, the event has raised a total of more than $6 million since the event began in 1978. Look for the event to grow next year as it is now a designated 501c3 non-profit. This will make it easier for businesses and corporate owners to contribute more while getting a deduction on their taxes.
The money raised is a little more than $1019 for each of the 815 students that took part in the 24-hour dance marathon. Among those selected to receive donations from this year are local organizations like "Woofs for Warriors". that organization helps pair vets suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder with rescue dogs.
