Ensworth High School Doubles Fundraising Goal!

On Saturday, Feb. 2, 2019, Ensworth High School in Nashville hosted their first mini-Dance Marathon. It took place from 10 a.m. to
4 p.m. in their cafeteria, and more than 90 students attended. This first-year program set a goal of $10,000. To reach this goal, the students formed relationships with businesses in the Nashville community, bringing in more than $7,000 in sponsorships, and focused on effective peer-to-peer fundraising. They also focused on building cause connection into their event programming and fundraising.

At 4 p.m., when the students lined up on stage to reveal their fundraising total, the crowd was shocked when the first-year program not only met their goal…they doubled it! They raised $20,012.19 for Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.

The Ensworth students have chosen to partner with Vanderbilt University Dance Marathon (VUDM), and will present their total at VUDM’s Big Event on Feb. 16. We are so proud of the students’ hard work, and can’t wait to see what they accomplish in the coming years.
