The South High Marathon Dance is a charitable event
SHMD is held every March in the small town of South Glens Falls, New York. Students at South Glens Falls High School, grades 9-12, gather to raise money and dance for an amazing 28 hours straight, all in the name of local people and charities who need help.
The dance began in 1978, with about 50 dancers raising $1500
The students donated the $1500 to a local Emergency Squad. SHMD has grown to include more than 820 dancers in 2018 raised more than 831,000.
In the 41 years the dance has been held, the students, and community, have raised over $7.3 Million Dollars.
The dance has donated money to individuals who need handicapped-accessible vans, organ transplants, and motorized wheelchairs. We have helped send terminally ill community members on vacations with their families, helped pay medical expenses, bought gifts for needy children at Christmas and helped purchase major medical equipment for a local hospital. Along with these individuals in need of our help, we have also donated money to organizations like Caritas, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, numerous scholarship funds, and local groups like the community center and fire departments. The dance is organized primarily by the students of South Glens Falls High School. A committee is formed every year to decide who the recipients will be that year. The student committee also helps decide what costume parties will take place at the dance…a time-honored tradition in which the dancers form groups and must prepare costumes that match a certain theme.

One of the biggest roadblocks to cancer treatment is transportation.
That’s why the American Cancer Society Road To Recovery program provides patients in need with free rides to treatment. And we need your help.
Volunteers have provided hundreds of thousands of rides for patients, but the need for drivers continues to accelerate.
Please consider becoming a volunteer driver. Volunteers donate their time and can provide as many rides as they want.
All drivers must have:
- A current, valid driver’s license
- A good driving record
- Access to a safe and reliable vehicle
- Regular desktop, laptop, or tablet computer access
- Proof of car insurance
