An event aimed to raised money for the American Cancer Society through dancing and twirling took place Sunday morning.
Twirling Unlimited hosted it’s 32nd Annual Cancer Research Donation– Baton and Dance competition at Maysville High school. A little after losing her mother and brother to cancer Pat Payne started the event to help raise money toward cancer research.
"I got the idea of doing it for cancer research because, everybody in their family has had someone that has been touched with cancer and so I thought, the money would go also for that," Pat Payne, Volunteer for the American Cancer Society.
16 year old Miranda Scott has been twirling since age 2. She said she is the only one from her community competing here today but she’s happy to be involved in an event centered around raising money for good cause.
"My community there isn’t really anyone else. That does this so it’s just really me. But, I guess the passion and seeing what peoples reaction is an amazement when I perform and it just kind of keeps me going and seeing how happy that makes people that kind of make me happy," said Scott.
