BASH Students Stand Up Against Cancer at Mini-THON

BASH students participated in this year’s MINI-THON, which raised $40,272.26.

The theme of the event was Harry Potter with the motto: “The cure is only a spell away”.

Students’ main goal throughout the night was to stand up against cancer and raise money for the Four Diamonds Fund,  a charitable organization based out of Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center. The organization’s ultimate objective is to conquer childhood cancer.

BASH students stood from 6 p.m. Friday to 6 a.m. Saturday. Activities going on throughout the night to keep students awake included:

– Quidditch, a sport that is played in the wizarding world of Harry Potter

-a Moon Bounce

-line dances every hour

The money raised by BASH puts its total at  just over $223K for the seven years BASH has held Mini-THONs.
