Preschoolers Dance Walk Way Toward Charity Goal 2009: Elizabeth Township

Preschoolers dance walk way toward charity goal

ELIZABETH TOWNSHIP — If the TV show “So You Think You Can Dance†is on the air 15 years from now, there is a
very good chance one of the acts might be an alumnus of the Rock Hill Child Developmental Center. In step to the sounds of the “Macarena†and “Electric Slide,†nearly 125 preschoolers took the floor in a school-wide dance party Friday in celebration of hitting their lofty March for Babies fundraising goal last week. The challenge, which ran for the month of April, tested students to raise $1,300 — $100 per classroom — in 30 days. Even the infant and toddler rooms took part in the drive. Every classroom hit their goal. Plus the two students who raised the most money received a special prize — a new bike. Those winners were Dawson Lewis and Blake Porter. Johnna Lunsford, director of the Child Development Center, said the event was a huge success and would “definitely do it again.†“I think it is very important when children are small to stress the importance of events like this and teaches them to give back,†Lunsford said.
On April 24, faculty and student partook in their own March for Babies walk around the Rock Hill campus.
