For the past few months, members of the community have been a part of organizing Belmont Hill’s first ever Dance Marathon. The dance will be on April 1st, 2017, open to all forms, from 6pm-11pm (7th and 8th graders have to leave at 9pm) and features many attributes that differ from your regular dance. Dance Marathon’s motto is FTK: for the kids. At the Dance Marathon, Belmont Hill will host former and current patients from Boston Children’s Hospital, who will join us in celebration of their recovery. It is a time to bring the community together and enjoy something bigger and better than just yourself. The evening will feature activities such as dance instructions, karaoke, carnival games, bouncy houses, and card-making for the patients at Children’s. We will, of course, have food, too! As of right now, five restaurants have granted us a sponsorship and will provide free food for 400 people. The schools invited to this event are Dana Hall, NCDS, and Winsor. As Peter Tamasi said last week, “it’s really important for everyone at this school to be a part of the community. Last year, Children’s Miracle Network raised over 27 million dollars for local Children’s Hospitals, and it is remarkable to think that we have an opportunity to donate to this wonderful cause.” This April 1st, come out, support your community, and help us reach our goal of $20,000. Let’s be a part of something really amazing.
