LHWHS Students Dance Marathon Raises Big Bucks for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in St. Louis

The Ladue Dance Marathon team holds up posters showing the total donations they raised.

More than 200 Ladue Horton Watkins High School students got on their feet for the Second Annual Ladue Dance Marathon on Saturday, January 31, 2015.   Fundraising efforts for the The Kids of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals of Greater St. Louis topped $27, 350, bringing LHWHS Dance Marathon’s two-year donations to more than $53,000 for CMNH-STL.

Planning began last April when the Ladue Dance Marathon Executive Board of students was formed.  The Ladue Dance Marathon is a chance for students to come together and celebrate their accomplishments and hear directly from the Miracle Kids and their families what their hard work truly means.
Led by Executive Directors Olivia Grimm and Sarah Kessel the following students made up this year’s board:
