Appalachian’s 2018 Dance Marathon raises over $42K for local nonprofits

More than 200 faculty, staff and students found their groove on the dance floor of Appalachian State University’s Legends Saturday, Feb. 24, during the 2018 Dance Marathon. The marathon was coordinated by Appalachian and the Community Together (ACT).

The 15th annual 15-hour event raised $42,696.46 to benefit two local nonprofit organizations — Parent to Parent Family Support Network-High Country (FSN-HC), which is housed in the university’s Reich College of Education, and Western Youth Network (WYN). Both organizations provide essential services to children and their families in Watauga County and the High Country of Western North Carolina.
