CBS 2 Heroes - Mini Dance Marathon

Updated: Thursday, December 19 2013, 08:31 AM CST
5th graders at Indian Creek Elementary School in Marion watched their friend Maddeson Tersinar battle cancer.  Even though she lost that fight, her legacy lives on in their hearts and minds as they support yet another Indian Creek 1st grader, Trinity Chadwick, currently battling the disease.  The students organized a mini dance marathon to support the larger University of Iowa Big Event Dance Marathon this Friday.  The marathon raises money to support children and families battling cancer at the University of Iowa Children's Hospital.  Indian Creek Elementary students are this week's CBS 2 Hero for honoring their classmates in such a special and unique way.  To donate to the U of I Dance Marathon, click here: CBS 2 Heroes - Mini Dance Marathon
