GahannaThon Dance Marathon
Lions to Dance Night Away for Good Cause
The students of Gahanna Lincoln HS
have set aside the traditional Winter Homecoming Formal to take a stand against pediatric cancer on behalf of children who cannot.
Saturday, Feb. 2, 2013, GLHS Student Council members will host GahannaThon, a non-stop dance marathon from 6-11 p.m.,
in the school’s main gymnasium, 140 S. Hamilton Rd.
It is fashioned after the similar student-driven BuckeyeThon
fundraising event by The Ohio State University. Both events share the common mission: To let kids be kids.
Community members may also take a stand by making a general online
contribution via DonorDrive®
with a Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American
, or a PayPal
All donations directly benefit the Hematology/Oncology Department of Nationwide Children's Hospital
and its work to end childhood cancer. As a Children’s Miracle Network hospital, medical care is provided to any child — regardless of a family’s ability to pay.
The more community involvement and students who join with us, the greater number of smiles and miracles we can all help bring about.
— Brooke Motsinger, GLHS Student Council President
Student participants are asked to raise a minimum $15 in pledges. Because every good turn deserves another, with each additional $5 incremental pledge, participants earn a raffle ticket for prizes throughout the evening. The GLHS Student Council has set an objective to register 500 students
for the event with an overall goal of raising $8,000 toward the cause. Partnering with the student council are nearly 20 additional GLHS student athletic teams, clubs and organizations including: the Honor Society, drama, DECA, yearbook/newspaper, Gahanna Bands, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and the Renaissance Action Team.
“This will truly be a party with a purpose and an opportunity to stand for those who cannot,” said Chris Wagner, 2012-2013 student council staff adviser.
