Eighteen-hour dance-a-thon to benefit ALS

The Washington Township High School Interact Club will be hosting its 14th Annual “Monzo Madness” to benefit local victims of Lou Gehrig’s disease.

The Washington Township High School Interact Club will be hosting its 14th Annual “Monzo Madness,” an 18-hour dance-a-thon to benefit local victims of Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS). WTHS students, signing up as couples and raising a minimum of $100 to participate, will begin dancing at 2:30 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 13, in the gymnasium of the school’s 11–12 wing. The event will continue until 8 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 14. The Washington Township Education Foundation has donated $3,250 to the cause, covering the t-shirt costs to outfit all participants in this year’s event.

Over 300 students have already pre-registered for the event and have already raised over $18,000 for ALS research. A donation will be made to the National ALS Foundation, bringing WTHS’s donation total to over $248,000 since the fundraiser’s inception.

Donations, with checks made payable to the WTHS Interact Fund, can be forwarded to April Renzetti at WTHS, 529 Hurffville-Cross Keys Road, Sewell, NJ 08080.
