QCSD Mini-Thon

What is Mini-Thon?
Our main goal is to help kids with cancer.
Quakertown’s Mini-Thon is an official part of Penn State Dance Marathon (THON).
THON is a completely student run organization, the largest philanthropic organization in the world! All proceeds will go directly to help fight pediatric cancer at the Penn State Hershey Medical Center.
 • For the Kids: our motto
 • Whether we are out asking businesses for donations or fundraising money for Mini-Thon. Putting in long hours planning Mini-Thon or standing without rest for 12 hours, the kids fighting pediatric cancer are our inspiration.

The QCSD Event
 • A non-profit annual fundraiser consisting of 12 hours of a non-sitting dance-a-thon.
 • QCHS students will raise a minimum amount of money in order to attend the event.
 • Many Four Diamond families will join our Mini-Thon family and spend time with us during the actual event. They will share stories about pediatric cancer and how it brings hardships to their families.
 • Come participate in many exciting games that will occur during the day.
 • The night will conclude with the raising of the cards, revealing how much money we have raised towards pediatric cancer.
 • Just like Penn State’s THON, there will be a line dance every hour on the hour.
 • The theme for this year’s event will be: Super Heroes

Community Hours
 • Community hours will be between 7 to 9:30 p.m. Friday night.
 • There will be many fun activities like an obstacle course, card decorating for families, and Zumba!
