Mazzuchelli Middle School in Dubuque was home to a two hour mini-dance marathon Friday evening. This is the third year Mazzuchelli has hosted a mini-marathon to raise money for Loras College's Dance Marathon.
This year, money was raised for the event through penny wars between sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grade students.
So far, Mazzuchelli has raised more than $1,000 dollars through penny wars alone.
"It's so enlightening to know that they are coming out here to support a cause that I and several other teachers are super excited about." Said Kate Dean a teacher at Mazzuchelli.
Last year, Mazzuchelli raised more than $2,700 for Loras College's Dance Marathon.
