Mason H.S. lip dub video looking to reach donation goal

Mason students get creative for donations (VIDEO)

MASON, OH (FOX19) - The viral lip dub video created by Mason High School students to help raise cancer awareness is just two days away from their fundraising campaign ending and they are asking for your help to reach their final goal.

Mason High School released the catchy video in order to raise awareness for their annual Pasta for Pennies campaign, a national fundraising program in partnership with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

The video shows nearly every student and teacher at Mason High School participating in the seemingly one-shot 12 minute video, which features the songs "Uptown Funk" and "Hall of Fame."

Even the popular "Watch Me (Whip/ Nae Nae)" song is hilariously dubbed by a student in a bear costume.

"Having everybody at my school and all of my classmates who I go to school with being involved was something that really meant a lot to me," said Lauren Wise who helped create the video.

The video has over 93,779 views on YouTube since posted last Thursday.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma and to improve the quality of life of patients and their families.

"They have had students and teachers affected by many different types of cancers - including leukemia and lymphoma, and they really wanted to make a difference and show their support," said Bridgette Hightower with the Tri-State chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

"It was kind of fun seeing what everyone came up with.  It was a lot of their own imagination, and their own creativity," said Connor O'Shaughnessey who helped create the video.

In order to reach their goal of $40,000, Mason students are asking people to donate money for the society. As of Thursday, the campaign has reached 41 percent of their goal with another two days of collection to go.

"It just shows how awesome Mason High School is and how we all came together to make this happen," Wise told FOX19 NOW.
