By The Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS — High school and college students from across Indiana who have held dance marathons have helped Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis reach a $50 million fundraising milestone.
More than 100 colleges and high schools have participated in the dance marathon program since 1991.
The fundraising achievement was celebrated Tuesday during a Statehouse ceremony with first lady Janet Holcomb. She presented the hospital’s foundation with a proclamation.
Money raised over the years has helped pay for pediatric research, patient care and benefits programs.
It’s also helped implement a program that treats children with rare and aggressive forms of cancer.
