MCMURRAY, Pa. (KDKA) – Local middle schoolers raised more than 47 grand to donate to the Ronald McDonald House.

Peter Township Middle School raised a total of $47,491.30 through their dance-a-thon earlier this month.

Their goal was to raise $25,000 but they almost doubled that.

On Wednesday morning, students and staff presented the Ronald McDonald House with a large check. “Way to go PTMS!” a Facebook post read.
