VFES will host its fourth Mini-Thon on January 11, 2019.  A mini-THON is a mini dance marathon. Throughout the day of the mini-THON, Valley Forge Elementary students will dance to raise awareness and money for the Four Diamonds fund.  Valley Forge Elementary School will be dancing the whole day from 8:35-3:15.   Each class will participate by dancing for approximately fifteen minutes. At the end of the day, the school will participate in a school-wide celebration of the day. 

The Four Diamonds fund raises money to help support families with children who have pediatric cancer. The mission of the Four Diamonds 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.

Each year, Four Diamonds provides direct support to approximately 600 children with cancer – 100 who are newly diagnosed and 500 who are continuing their fight. Four Diamonds supports a diverse platform of childhood cancer research at Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital; seeking improved treatments and cures to benefit those around the world.

In the U.S., more children die from cancer than any other disease, with 16,000 kids diagnosed every year. Dollars raised by Valley Forge Elementary School Mini-THON® 2019 ensure that every Four Diamonds child, regardless of income, receives the highest quality of cancer care without ever seeing a bill for that care. We’re also supporting the latest breakthroughs in research to benefit children around the world. Having a better understanding of how cancer works will help Four Diamonds’ researchers develop new, more effective treatments to test through clinical trials and save more lives.
