SANCAthon raises money for at-risk kids

Josephine Shapiro, 7, center, walks the tightwire on Sunday with fellow Amazing Circus 1-ders, the youngest of three performing groups at the School of Acrobatics & New Circus Arts. Students participated in SANCAthon, in which groups raised money to help the nonprofit fund scholarships and outreach programs for at-risk kids. This group of students, ages 5-8, set out to do 750 cartwheels, 600 pushups, 15 tightwire crosses, 20 rope climbs and a headstand relay as a group, said Terri Sullivan, the founder of SANCAthon. "It's a really powerful team-building class," said mother Nekole Shaprio. Dwight Hutton, executive director, said SANCA had met its goal of $25,000 by 3:30 p.m., making it the most successful SANCAthon to date.
