Event Description

What is Cam-a-thon?

The annual "Cam-a-thon Dance Marathon for Children with Cancer" is a 12-hour overnight event hosted by the Downingtown STEM Academy benefitting the Cure4Cam Childhood Cancer Foundation in memory of Cameron Evans, a Downingtown Area School District student who passed away from leukemia in 2012 at the age of 14. 
The idea behind the event was one of "kids inspiring kids", of students learning that community service could be fun, that they can work with adults for a common goal, and that their efforts DO matter and WILL make a difference. What started as a group of 100 students raising $8000 the first year has grown to over 800 students participating annually, with almost $300,000 raised to date.

This is a FUNdraising event! And a celebration of those fundraising efforts! During the 12 hours, there is dancing…and so much more! Come share some great music, games, food, and other activities! Come out for a great time while supporting a great cause!
**All proceeds go to help fund much needed childhood cancer research via Cure4Cam. Fundraising for Cam-a-thon means fundraising for a future without childhood cancer! Every quarter, nickel, dime and dollar count! (Pennies too!)
