LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Students got their groove on Friday night for a good cause.

A dance marathon was held at McCutcheon High School for Grant's House.

Grant's House is an after school and summer program through the Wabash Center. It helps children and young adults with special needs.

It was created in honor of Grant House. Grant was a Wabash Center employee who passed away at 25.

Friday's event was put on by the McCutcheon Students in Action Committee. They chose Grant's House because Grant was a McCutcheon grad.

"Grant loved to give people beaded bracelets and necklaces, just as a form of saying he cared about people. So, we try to keep Grant's name alive by wearing beads. I have beads on right now. We all wear beads throughout McCutcheon," said Kennady Oliver.

The action committee was awarded gold by the Jefferson Awards Foundation for their mission.
