On March 7, over 250 York Catholic senior high students will once again join the efforts of over 280 high schools, middle schools, and elementary schools to have fun and work to conquer pediatric cancer. Based on Penn State’s successful THON, a 46-hour dance marathon, Mini-THON challenges students to stay on their feet while participating in a number of high energy activities including Zumba, Dodge Ball, and Speedball.  Students are reminded to wear their Mini-THON t-shirts, sneakers, and pants or modest shorts that meet the extra-curricular dress code

All proceeds accumulated through the efforts of Mini-THON are donated directly to The Four Diamonds at Penn State Children’s Hospital, Hershey, PA.  In seven years, York Catholic has raised over $120,000 to help conquer pediatric cancer. This year our goal is to raise $22,000 and raise awareness “For the Kids.”

All senior high students who are interested in participating can register by submitting the Permission Slip and a $20 registration fee during the week of February 3.

A $30 minimum donation for The Four Diamonds must be submitted by Friday, February 21.

Donations can be given to Mrs. Wertz in room 204 at YC or paid online using The Four Diamonds Online Social Fundraising Website, DonorDrive at  All donations go towards helping conquer pediatric cancer.
