Any application received after that date will be filed for the 2017 dance.

Fundraising in the name of South High Marathon Dance

Part of the success of the South High Marathon Dance is attributed to the increasing number of fundraisers that take place throughout the community in the time leading up to the dance itself. In an effort to ensure all fundraising activities are recognized and included in our public outreach efforts, we ask that all activities be coordinated through our Events Committee. If you are interested in conducting any fundraising in the name of the Marathon Dance please reach out to us at Please note that all fundraising activities, events, and use of the South High Marathon Dance name, icons, images, and logos, are subject to approval by the South High Marathon Dance Committee. At minimum, all fundraising activities will be posted on the Marathon Dance website. If you find that an event is not posted here please contact us to verify the legitimacy.

Donation of Goods or Services

Many businesses, individuals, and organizations donate goods or services to the dance to be used as auction items, rewards for dancers, or to provide food for dancers, recipients, or the concession stand. If you are interested in donating a good or service, please contact us at Please provide us the information about the goods or services you would like to donate as soon as possible so that we may plan accordingly. The Marathon Dance will use your donation as it deems most appropriate. If you are approached by someone representing the South High Marathon Dance, but unsure of their legitimacy, please reach out to us to verify their identity.
