ETHS will host the first ETHS Dance Marathon from 5 to 11 p.m. on Nov. 19. A student-run event sponsored by the ETHS Community Service Department, the goal of the Dance Marathon is to raise awareness about and provide financial support for three local organizations: The Evanston Community Foundation, Special Olympics in Evanston, and Be Positive.

Like Northwestern University’s annual event, Dance Marathon will include organized activities throughout the evening such as group dances, dance contests, ping pong – and a bouncy house. Students are expected to keep moving during Dance Marathon with the exception of a short break after the first three hours.
