West High "Gold Out" tonight

Posted: Updated:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

In efforts to raise awareness for pediatric cancer and the West High Dance Marathon, Iowa City West will host a Gold Out at the football game tonight against Kennedy.

West High has been selling Gold Out shirts all week, and more will be on sale tonight to fill the stadium with gold.

A football run will begin at 4 pm. West High staff members will start the run at the University of Iowa's Children's Hospital Oncology Wing and finish in the school's court yard where fans will meet for a flash mob.

Balloons and popsicles will also be available for purchase, with all proceeds going to the West High Dance Marathon in January.

The dance marathon raised over $21,000 last year for the UI Children's Hospital and children battling pediatric cancer.
