47th annual South High Marathon Dance underway


SOUTH GLENS FALLS, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Students at South Glens Falls High School are taking part in the annual South High Marathon Dance. The dance kicked off around 7 p.m. Friday and will continue nonstop until Saturday night.

This is the 47th year of the event, and it serves as a fundraiser for many local charities. A total of $10 million has been raised since it began.

Students said it also helps generate school spirit. More than 80 percent of the high school students take part each year.

“I think a lot of students return every year to the marathon dance because it is our one thing we have at the school that is special to us,” student Cody Touse said. “It’s only us in the state that is doing this dance, and it’s a lot of fun to do it, and we love to give back to our community.”

The goal this year is to raise more than they did last year, which was more than $630,000.
