VIDEO: Elmwood Park Teachers Make Mannequin Challenge For A Cause

ELMWOOD PARK, N.J. – The 16th Avenue School in Elmwood Park froze on Tuesday — and not because of the weather.

The staff jumped on a viral internet sensation to make its own mannequin challenge video for a cause.

The initative was to help the Ingui Family raise awareness toward its foundation, Rare is Beautiful , aimed at collecting funds to cure Peutz-Jeghers Syndrome.

The charity was launched after 15-year-old Denise Ingui, also known as Dee Dee, was diagnosed with the syndrome in 2015.

The rare disease affects the gene that suppresses tumor growth, greatly increasing the risk of cancer.
