Dear Recipient Applicants:


Thank you for your interest in the Deep Run High School Marathon Dance.  The application process is a joint effort between DRHS parents, staff, alumni, and students involved with the dance.  The students play a vital role in choosing who will receive money raised for the dance.


Recipient applications were sent out on Thursday, September 14th, 2017 via email to every Deep Run High School parent and staff member.  We asked our parents/staff to then forward the application to community organizations they would like to see benefit from this year’s dance.  The application must be filled out by the appropriate representative of your organization and be submitted online no later than Friday October 13th, 2017 at midnight.  The Marathon Dance Student Committee will then review all applications and a decision will be reached by mid-January 2018.


In efforts to not show favoritism and to allow the school community to forward onto organizations in which they are already involved, we do not send the applications out by any other means.   We try to help as many people as possible but it is important to our students that our efforts are kept close to home.  This is why the students have set the application process up this way.   It is very important that you complete all sections of the application making sure to include your connection to Deep Run HS, if any.  The very last question of the application is of critical importance to the selection process so make sure you read the directions and take some extra time on this portion.  Our best advice to you is to remember who your target audience is and be heartfelt and creative.


Finally, it is our expectation that representatives from organizations who are selected to be recipients attend ALL major fundraisers for the dance.  A list of all fundraisers scheduled which organizations would be expected to attend can be found HERE


Thank you again for your interest and we, along with the students of Deep Run High School, wish you and your organization the best of luck with the application process.
