What is Mini-Thon®?


Mini-THONs are fun events that empower students to put their leadership skills into action as we work together to conquer childhood cancer.

Four Diamonds Mini-THONs are interactive events for students of all ages that inspire teamwork, leadership and creativity, while empowering youth and young adults through philanthropy and community 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 since 1993. 

With more than 90,000 student volunteers and 265 schools in eight states (and counting!), Mini-THONs are bringing hope to families in need and giving back to their community. During the 2016-17 school year, elementary schools, middle schools, high schools and colleges raised more than $6.46 million for Four Diamonds. See how dollars raised by Mini-THON are making a difference in the lives of children fighting cancer by providing world-class medical care and life-saving research. 

"I never realized the positive impact that hosting a Mini-THON® would have on our school community and the community at-large. Since its inception, there has been a dramatic increase in school spirit. Most importantly, our 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
