An Indiana school’s “lip dub” video has gone viral.

The toe-tapping film showcases thousands of Avon High School students and staff who lip sync to a “danthology” of 68 pop songs, including hits from Justin Timberlake, Lorde and Taylor Swift. And they did it all in the name of charity.

“Avon High School Lip Dub 2014” was produced to drum up excitement for the school’s dance marathon event this weekend, hoping to raise money for James Whitcomb Riley Hospital for Children.

The more than six-minute video posted to YouTube Saturday has already garnered more than 150,000 views.

Produced and filmed by student Suketu Patel, the video showcases thousands of students from cheerleaders to athletes to musicians to art students, and it was all done in one take.

The video starts in the school cafeteria and travels through the halls as students and staff, dressed in spirited school attire, sing and dance in a choreographed routine, culminating in the school gymnasium where thousands of students cheer and celebrate.

The school hopes the video will encourage donations ahead of their Riley Dance Marathon Saturday.

Donations can be made here.
