CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The Cintas Center was packed Friday night and not for basketball.

Almost a thousand area teens filled the arena for an all night party to raise money for childhood cancer research.

The event is put on by the non-profit organization Cancer Free Kids, which was founded by Ellen Flannery.

"These kids are coming together to walk all night, dance and to have a lot of fun, but they've done a lot of fundraising to get here," said Flannery.

This is the fourth year for the event and Flannery said the kids raised more than $120,000 for research.
