This year’s Mini-THON, held at the Elizabethtown
Area High School, was a resounding success.
Attendees enjoyed a variety of fun games and
activities like nine square, basketball, and even a
bouncy house. New this year were a bunny room and
a video game tournament, both of which were
well attended, especially during visiting hours.
At the end of the night, the final hour was packed with fun music, dancing, and smiles. Then, as participants hit 12 hours of standing, everyone sat and the Mini-THON team revealed the final amount raised: $85,825.61. This money goes toward the Four Diamonds organization, which funds cancer research, medical bills, therapy for cancer patients, and more.
Four Diamonds covers 100 percent of all medical expenses related to cancer care not covered by insurance for eligible Four Diamonds children. Because of events like EAHS’s Mini-THON, Four Diamonds has assisted 100 percent of the childhood cancer patients who have been treated at Penn State Children's Hospital.
