WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Students are movin’ and groovin’ inside of West Lafayette Jr.-Sr. High School, and it’s all for a good cause.

They are taking part in the sixth annual West Lafayette Dance Marathon to help support Riley Hospital for Children.

Along with dancing, students have to opportunity to play games and eat snacks.

This year, the students raised over $20,000 for Riley. That’s about $3,000 more than last year.

President Sarah Cohen said it’s great to see the turnout of over 80 students to help support the hospital.

“I dance for the kids who can’t,” said Cohen. “That’s kind of my favorite phrase that has been said. You see the Riley families here, not everybody has the ability to be on their feet and be able to do all of these activities that we have to opportunity to do today.”

The students revealed their grand total around 7 p.m. Saturday.
