Despite snags this year, including a delay due to bad weather, many students still showed up to dance all night at Mini-THON.

The theme for this year’s fundraiser was Toy Story, with a motto of “To infinity and beyond”. The theme was very fitting, as students had to persevere to keep up attendance and reschedule vendors after a bad storm cancelled the original event, which was supposed go from 6 p.m. March 2 to 6 a.m. March 3.

“Despite the planning challenges that we faced, Mini-THON was awesome,” Committee Member and Senior Miya Carmichael said. “Dedicated students still showed up and everyone seemed to have a great time.”

Modeled after Penn State’s THON, Mini-THON is an all-night dance event that raises money for the Four Diamonds Fund, which assists children treated for cancer at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital and their families. The fund also supports research.

Students raise money by asking people to sponsor them for dancing 12 hours.

Students kept active all night with a moonbounce, line dances, and other games. Although the $50,000 goal was not met, it raised $38,426.57, which was revealed at the end of the night.

“Overall I thought it went really well. I’m proud of our team for overcoming all of the obstacles and chaos from having to reschedule last minute,”  Student Council Advisor Mr. Kusniez said. “Yet they still pulled together and put on an event that was fun and successful.”

Student council members reveal the grand total of money raised.
