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.
