Each year, our school partners with UofSCDM to raise money for Prisma Health Children’s Hospital. Cardinal Newman Dance Marathon (CNDM) is a student-focused event, which is planned & directed by a student executive team. The CNDM Executive Team consists of 9th and 10th graders who help at all CNDM events, and the executive board, which consists of 11th and 12th graders chosen from an application & interview process. They work tirelessly throughout the year to plan and execute numerous fundraising events.
In 2012, Cardinal Newman was the first school in the State to partner with the UofSC Dance Marathon (USCDM) and the first junior high/high school in the Midlands to do so. Cardinal Newman has raised over $300,000 since this began. USCDM started over twenty years ago and is the largest student-run philanthropy in South Carolina.
