F-M students dance for 12 hours to help kids with cancer

Students from Fayetteville-Manlius High School danced from noon to midnight Saturday to benefit kids at Camp Good Days.
Manlius (WSYR-TV) -- More than 1,000 students came together at Fayetteville-Manlius High School for their Dance Marathon 2014.

For more than 20 years, the school has hosted the event to benefit Camp Good Days and Special Times. The facility provides free camp programs and support for children and families affected by cancer.

"It's really a way for each person in this school to have a tangible relationship with Camp Good Days. They personally raise the money and then they're personally able to send kids to camp," said student Ryan Van Slyke.

Each student was required to raise at least $50 to participate.

Last year, students raised more than $125,000, pushing them over the million dollar mark.  The event has been going on for more than 20 years.
