Mount Carmel High School Mini Thon

Mount Carmel Area Junior Senior high school students on their feet all day long (no sitting!) To raise money for charity
Mount Carmel, PA – The students at Mount Carmel Area High School, Mount Carmel, PA., will spend 12 hours on their feet through the day on Saturday, September 28, 2013 from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.  The event, organized by Mount Carmel Area High School Alumni, will benefit the Four Diamonds Fund at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital, Hershey, PA.  The high school’s “Mini-THON” is based on the Penn State Dance Marathon – the largest student-run philanthropy in the nation where dancers spend 46 hours awake and on their feet to raise money for pediatric caner patients.
“Mini-THONs” were started in 1993-1994 by students wanting to support the Four Diamonds Fund even before college and have raised more than $10 million since their inception.. The Mount Carmel Mini-THON’s goal is to raise over $5,000 for the Four Diamonds Fund by participating in various fundraising activities.

This is the first year that the students at Mount Carmel Area High School are holding the Four Diamonds Mini-THON. Activities such as dodge ball, basketball, dancing, zumba and other various events will be held during the Mini-THON to keep the dancers awake and motivated to endure a whole day without sitting.
The mission of the Four Diamonds Fund is to conquer childhood cancer by assisting children treated at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital and their families, through superior care, comprehensive support, and innovative research.
