Young students at Manorhaven Elementary School in the Port Washington Union Free School District recently took the national Whip Pediatric Cancer challenge in recognition of Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month.
Wearing shades of gold, the official color of the pediatric cancer awareness ribbon, students performed the “Watch Me Whip and Nae Nae” song and dance by Silento. Physical education teacher Megaera Regan and a group of fifth-grade students led first graders in the gymnasium while other classes followed their direction, as the dance was simulcast into classrooms via the smart board. The challenge gained traction on social media in an effort to raise awareness and support for the fight against pediatric cancer.
