What is Mini-Thon?

Mini-THONs are interactive, fun-filled events that are student-led.

Four Diamonds Mini-THONs are fun-filled events for students of all ages which inspire teamwork, leadership, and creativity while empowering young people through philanthropy and service in the fight to conquer childhood cancer. Mini-THONs are modeled after the Penn State IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon (THON), and have been making a difference in the lives of childhood cancer patients and their families for more than 20 years. 

With over 188 schools and 30,000 student participants throughout the region, Mini-THONs are bringing hope to families in need and creating a legacy of service within their community. During the 2014 – 2015 school year, these elementary, middle and high schools raised over $4.3 million for Four Diamonds. See these donor dollars at work!


"I never realized the positive impact that hosting a Mini-THON would have on our school community and the community at-large. Since it's inception, there has been a dramatic increase in school spirit. Most importantly, the Mini-THON has increased student leadership skills, allowing them to handle multiple aspects of philanthropy while selflessly working to raise both monetary funds and awareness for Four Diamonds."                                                                - John Gildea, teacher and Mini-THON advisor at Springfield High School
