This Valentine’s Day, the Richland Academy gymnasium was buzzing with excitement as we held our first ever “Dance-a-Thon Fundraiser for Haiti,” in accordance with Free The Children’s ‘Adopt-A-Village’ program. Students, staff and some parents had fun expressing themselves as they enjoyed a diverse playlist of songs selected from each class. Students dressed in pink, red and white in celebration of the day.
Our Richland Ambassadors, who hosted the Dance-a-Thon, described it as “full of energy” and “awesome,” and decided that it should definitely be an annual event. We are proud to announce that our students and staff collected over $4,000 in pledges, which will go directly toward our village in Manac, Haiti! With this total, we are less than $1,000 away from reaching our ‘Adopt-a-Village’ goal! Congratulations to all!
