"All together in this fight, For The Kids we will Unite!"
Mini-THON is a 12 hour dance marathon in attempt to raise money towards the Four Diamonds Fund, a pediatric cancer research center, with the ultimate goal of beating out childhood cancer. This is a smaller version of THON, done by Penn State, and many other schools across the country. This is my third year as a participant, and second year on the leadership council for this event at Phoenixville Area High School.
Here's a little more about Four Diamonds:
Four Diamonds is based in Hershey PA, they support 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.
In the U.S., more children die from cancer than any other disease, with 16,000 kids diagnosed every year. But Four Diamonds ensures that every child they treat, regardless of income, receives the highest quality of cancer care without ever seeing a bill for that care.
We need your help to conquer childhood cancer. Please support my efforts to save more kids fighting cancer by making a donation. Any amount contributed is greatly appreciated!
