MOUNT CARMEL TOWNSHIP â€” There was some moving and grooving in Northumberland County Saturday and it was all to raise money for pediatric cancer research.
Hundreds turned out for the third annual â€œThink Big Dance Marathonâ€ at the Mount Carmel Junior/Senior High School.
The event raises money for the Janet Weis Childrenâ€™s Hospital.
â€œI do this cause I have a lot of people who I lost to cancer. When I was in 6th grade, we lost someone in our class,â€ said Victoria Chapman of Mount Carmel. â€œSo a lot of people come out for that reason.â€
The â€œThink Big Dance Marathonâ€ continues until 9 p.m. Saturday night.
Organizers hope to raise $20,000 at the event near Mount Carmel.
