Money raised from Cha Cha Charity will be used to help vulnerable Tasmanians and to promote positive mental health.
Andrew Palmer danced the Cha Cha for 24 straight hours earlier this year to raise money for The Examiner's Winter Relief Appeal and Speak Up! Stay ChatTY.
When all was said and done Palmer had raised about $42,000.
In other news:
Palmer said he spent the first four days after the event in bed and suffered excruciating pain in his feet for weeks following the dance marathon.
But, the ends must have justified the means because he said he would be open to doing a similar event in the future.
SUSC founder Mitch McPherson said the money raised would be used to expand Stay ChatTY school program.
"Mental health and suicide prevention is not just something a small group of professionals can impact, we need the wider community to be part of the solution too," he said.
He thanked Palmer for his hard work and how his team had bought the community together.
The Examiner editor Courtney Greisbach said Palmer's effort exemplified Northern Tasmania's generosity.
She thanked Andrew and his team of supporters for their fundraising efforts.
"Andrew's significant donation has helped us to have a record year for the Winter Relief Appeal, and we still have another month of fundraising to go."
Palmer thanked everyone who helped make the event happen especially Deputy Mayor Danny Gibson and wife Jo Palmer who were both by his side for the full 24 hours.
