Middletown Area High School Mini-THON

roomfuldancing5 11 16

It’s all fun and games at the Middletown Area High School Mini-THON until they reveal the amount of money students raised for charity. Then it’s even better.


That’s because each year students have broken the school record for money raised during the annual fundraiser – a night of dancing, basketball, volleyball and other games in the school gym. This year was no different.


Students raised a school record $31,575.28 at this year’s Mini-THON on Friday, April 29, beating the old record by more than $10,000.


The Mini-THON raises money for the Four Diamonds Fund, a charity that helps the families of kids battling cancer at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital.
