Circ-A-Thon 2017 Update

Thank you, thank you, thank you! Circ-A-Thon was a resounding success. The students demonstrated their new circus skills that they had been working on this fall. The students raised $7,210 in pledges and the raffle, auction and concessions raised $2,970 for a total of $10,180. Again, thank you.

To see the photos taken by Matt Steffen please visit the media gallery on this page. Please contact us if you would like a print copy.

Circ-A-Thon is My Nose Turns Red’s annual friend and fundraising event. Each student picks a skill, sets a goal and challenges themselves to master it by Circ-A-Thon. Just like a walk-a-thon, they seek pledges . On December 9th, they went for it!

Students demonstrated gym wheel, unicycle, hoop, stilt walking and ring juggling.

The family friendly event includes tasty treats, baskets of goodies to raffle, and a silent auction to round out this fun family experience.

11:00 AM-2:30 PM at Fairview-Clifton German Language School, 3689 Clifton Ave, Cincinnati, OH  45220.
