The Rotary Club of Ballston Spa donates to local school students raising funds for others in need. Founded 34 years ago, the South Glens Falls marathon dance and related activities have raised more than $2.75 million for more than 200 beneficiaries in the local area. A student committee reviews and makes decisions about requests for financial assistance. Thirty-five individuals have been selected for charitable donations from this year’s dance.
The South High Marathon Dance is on pace to break last year’s fundraising record of $326,213. It is students like this, acting out Rotary’s motto, Service Above Self, that will make all communities a better place.
