York Tech's Mini-THON
That's a wrap! YTech MiniTHON a SUCCESS
Posted on 04/04/2019
This is the image for the news article titled That's a wrap! YTech MiniTHON a SUCCESSThe total has been calculated and the final number being donated to Four Diamonds is $17,331.38. With a fundraising goal of $10,000, we couldn't be more thrilled of the results. Our Spartan Nation community came together for a great cause.

The evening started with Steve Dellinger (Class of '79) opening up the event with personal remarks about Four Diamonds. Having a son who recently was diagnosed with cancer, the Four Diamonds has been a huge help to him and his family. 

After opening remarks, students took part in a number of fun activities including the dunk tank, bouncy house, gaga ball, and basketball. They could also play Disney Kahoots, watch the Lion King (standing of course!), or treat themselves to Cotton Candy, popcorn, or Rita's Italian Ice. 

For those that may be unfamiliar, Four Diamonds strives to cover 100% of medical costs for children with childhood cancer. Mini-THONs are modeled after Penn State's IFC/ Panhellenic Dance Marathon (THON), which started in 1993. 

York County School of Technology is just one of 283 schools around the country joining forces to conquer childhood cancer by hosting a Mini-THON. 

This event has been a positive force in our community as students are learning to put their leaderships skills into action.
