A video produced by the Phayre family of Lakewood Ranch has won a third-place award worth a $15,000 donation to All Children’s Hospital in Sarasota.

Primrose Schools announced the award today.

Scott and Shelley Phayre, and their son, Cameron, produced the video, “Super Phayre Family,” in which the family of three morphs into Super Mario Bros. characters and transposes themselves into the video game, collecting coins for the All Children’s Hospital, according to a press release from Primrose School.

Cameron attends the Primrose School at Lakewood Ranch Town Center.

"Since he was two, our son Cameron has been going to speech therapy at All Children’s Specialty Care in Sarasota, a reason in itself for us to give back to the hospital,” said Shelley Phayre in the press release. "All Children's has also helped many families in our community, so we did everything we could to make a video that would make them proud."

The Family Dance-off is a national video contest by Primrose Schools that encourages families to step up the fight against childhood obesity by dancing for healthy, active lifestyles.

Families nationwide submitted 185 30-second home videos for the contest. More than 294,000 votes were cast.

The Phayre family won $1,500 in addition to the hospital donation.
