Over 200 ASU students endured the cold wintery snow and helped raise $41,045.62 for Western Youth Network and Parent to Parent FSN-HC on Saturday, February 21st.  This was $8,000 more than what was raised last year from the Dance Marathon.  Thank you all so much for your support! 

We want to thank these individuals: Jacqueline Hundley, Rosie Waring, Annie Greeley, Thomas Gallagher, Troy Colvard, Lindsey Woods, Brandon Williams, Melissa Lee, and Conner Strand.  These individuals were our top 10 fundraisers of the night.  All together, they raised over $9,000. 

The top 3 fundraising teams were:

  1. Service and Leadership Team - $7,425.00
  2. Alternative Service Experience - $ 7,095.00
  3. Appalachian Educators - $5,313.00

With that being said, the top team for the event, The Marathon Master's Cup winner, was the Appalachian Popular Programming Society. They raised a total of $4,275.00. They were selected as the winner as they had raised the most money per fundraiser for all of the teams, had the best spirit at the event, and great morale participation for the last 3 hours of the event.
