The Penn State IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon is not the only organization funding the Four Diamonds Fund and its fight against pediatric cancer. Schools across the state and surrounding region hold multi-hour dance events, or Mini-THONs, to support Four Diamonds.

Mini-THONs, which replicate THON on a smaller scale, donate the money raised directly to the Four Diamonds Fund. Currently, more than 100 schools and 20,000 students participate in the Mini-THON program, which entails creating committees, organizing students, planning entertainment for the event, fundraising and more. Mini-THON events give students an opportunity to use their creativity and curriculum skills outside of the classroom and they are a great way for students and schools to foster school unity and build school spirit. Mini-THON schools work alongside THON and the Four Diamonds Fund in an effort to raise awareness and find a cure for pediatric cancer. To date, these high schools, middle schools and elementary schools have raised more than $10 million For The Kids and their totals continue to increase.

During 2012-2013, the Four Diamonds Mini-THONs raised more than $2 million!

Your school can become part of the movement to conquer childhood cancer. To start organizing an event at your school contact, or 717-531-6086.
