Donate To This Event

          Twenty two years ago in 1998, a former A-C middle school teacher, Mrs. Joanne Custer, wanted to introduce her eighth grade English students to the importance of community service.  To accomplish this, she encouraged them to raise money for a walk around South Hills Park for a charity she had heard about called Four Diamonds.  Central Dauphin High School had done an overnight “Mini-Thon” and raised a great deal of money for families whose children have cancer, so she thought she could slowly introduce the idea of community service with the walk.  They raised just over $1,000, but the idea took hold in the minds of staff and students, and the culture of Annville-Cleona would never be the sam

            Since that time when A-C became the third high school in Pennsylvania to work towards helping Four Diamonds, that small walk turned into a rock-a-thon and eventually a 12-hour overnight Mini-Thon event for high school students and an 8-hour Saturday event for middle school students.  Over the years, students have raised over $880,000 for the organization that has directly benefited current A-C students as well as children of staff members and alumni.

           How can you help support A-C?   You can support with a donation directing through Donor Drive, or you can be a business sponsor and be recognized in various ways.  Visit our links for more information, see our social media, or contact Mini-Thon Advisors Mr. Ryan Clements, Mrs. Sue Felty, or Mrs. Denyse Mohn.
