MIDDLETOWNthonMiddletown Area High School students raised a record $16,154.55 for the Four Diamonds Fund during its annual Mini-THON on Friday, March 22 at the school.

About 200 students raised the amount, which topped last year’s total by about $5,000.

“I think that’s quite a feat for our students to accomplish that,” said Superintendent Lori Suski. “We had a lot of community and business support, so it was really the community of Middletown coming together for a good cause.”

At Lower Dauphin High School, more than 440 students raised $60,304.58 in their Mini-THON on Friday, March 22 and Saturday, March 23, a school record.

Students at South Hanover Elementary School raised $18,425.63 in an after-school Mini-THON on Friday, March 22.
