RCHS to host Riley Dance Marathon

Event set for March 16

RUSHVILLE — RCHS Student Council President Jessica Miller took the initiative to bring The Riley Dance Marathon to organizations at the local high school.

With Miller’s leadership, RCHS FCA, FAA, SADD and Key Club are hosting The Riley Dance Marathon from 4 to 10:30 p.m. Saturday, March 16 in Memorial Gymnasium.

This event is for RCHS students and marathon sponsors.

Tickets will be $12 at the door and music will be provided by a DJ.

Riley Children’s Hospital is Indiana’s first and only comprehensive hospital dedicated exclusively to the care of children.

Because they receive no direct state funds, the hospital depends on the generosity of donors to support the care they provide.

Riley touches many lives in Rush County and across the state of Indiana. Rush County families made 496 visits to Riley Hospital last year.

Riley Hospital cares for Indiana’s sickest children and is ranked number one in the United States in treating complex illnesses; Riley’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and pediatric pulmonary program are ranked among the top in the nation as well.

There are five categories that enable individuals, clubs and organizations to participate in the upcoming local dance marathon and support Riley.

1. Roaring Red Wagon Sponsor: Corporate contribution of $500 to $1,999.  

Your large corporate banner will be displayed at the marathon.
