We are so excited to partner with UCF to bring Dance Marathon to TFA, aka Royal-Thon! The inaugural event was a huge success that raised $25,000 for Children’s Miracle Network and Arnold Palmer Hospital. All of the students and staff who were involved are so appreciative of everyone’s support. More than 800 Lower, Middle, and Upper School students danced #ForTheKids!

The second annual Royal-Thon is set for Friday, February 21. More details will be announced in the early Fall. Be sure to follow @TFAStudentLife on Instagram or Twitter for the latest updates.
