The 11th annual Deep Run Marathon Dance will take place next weekend, March 17th through the 18th at Deep Run High School, where more than 600 students will raise funds for 12 deserving nonprofits serving the Central Virginia area.

Over the past decade, students have raised more than $1.7 million for area nonprofits.

Students will check in on the evening of Friday, March 17th and dance for pledges, leaving 27 hours later. The participants will take breaks and have the option to sleep for two hours.

The dance ranks second nationally in fundraising among such events.

The public is invited to attend the dance’s finale on Saturday, March 18th. It takes place at 7:30 PM in the school’s gymnasium.

Because the number of participants has grown in recent years, only registered dancers are permitted on the dance floor. Interested members of the public can donate until March 31st by sending a check to Deep Run High School, 4801 Twin Hickory Road, Glen Allen, Virginia 23059, Attn: Kathleen Kern, DRMD director. Checks should be made payable to “DRHS.” Checks will also be accepted at the event.
