Registration for Mini-THON has begun now!

Why register? You can be a part of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity where you will dance for the kids and help raise money for Four Diamonds.

“I think it gives children all over the place who have cancer a voice through Mini-THON,” said junior Isabella Contino. “Everything we do helps raise awareness and helps the families that are suffering through this. It pays for bills, for therapy, and for treatment.”

Nationally, Mini-THON raises millions of dollars every year to help end childhood cancer and the families affected by it. However, when asked about this year’s monetary goal, junior Kaeli Miller, a Mini-THON PR member, explained this group’s philosophy.

“There is actually no monetary goal,” said Miller. “The goal on our website is just there to have a number. Our motto is that it’s not about the dollar amount but how much we help out the kids.”

It is an amazing night to be a part of, so sign up now and join Mini-THON on Saturday, April 25 alongside many of the other dancers who have already signed on. The monetary minimum of $50 is due on the night of the dance, and you can pay it off on your own or collect donations. You do not have to dance if you wish to just donate. Every dollar helps bring awareness to children’s cancer.

FNP Productions will be at this event providing DJ and special effects that are brand new to this year’s event. There will fun games such as basketball, dodgeball, kan jam, color wars, twister, soccer, cup pong, etc. On top of it all, the dance floor will be there for students to party all night long.

“We’re at 300 current participants with an expected 800 participants,” said Miller.

The event will also have a lot of security to help protect this large number of students. This includes teachers, staff members, the principal, etc.

In the attached video, you can learn how to register. It is quick and easy! It is encouraged that you signup as soon as possible to ensure you can raise enough money by their deadline. If you have any inquiries, you can get in contact with their PR Committee being Kaeli Miller and Isabella Contino. Beyond just registering, you will also have to fill out a waiver next month that is just for liability purposes and costs an additional $10.
