Student body event raised upwards of $5,000 for ailing children'
Cayce, SC (James Bowers) - The students of Brookland-Cayce High School got to have some fun for a good cause as the school had its first annual “Mini-Dance Marathon” at the school’s gymnasium Friday afternoon. The event was the culmination of five months of fundraising for Palmetto Children’s Hospital, a member of the Children’s Miracle Network and its network of children’s hospitals. Dance marathons across the country support and help raise money for these.
The event Friday featured high-energy dancing and refreshments for the students who attended as well as other entertainment such as games. The students celebrated the raising over $5,000 for the hospital and its patients. The funds will be used for projects such as a patient playground. The B-C High version of the event was spearheaded by student body president Owen Sease who had been looking for a charity for the students to get behind this school year.
“Many of our students have been in the hospital at some point, so we thought it was time to give back to the hospital," Sease said. “We’ve been working hard for the past five months, and I think we’ve had a really good first year.” Sease anticipates that the project will continue to grow at Brookland-Cayce High School over the next couple of years.
