MiniThon

Mini THON- Please join us the 3rd annual Stroudsburg Mini THON, an all night dance marathon that raises money for fighting pediatric cancer. Dancers volunteer and work to get as many pledges as possible in order to help meet the school's goal.  Last year, Stroudsburg was able to raise $52,742.16! This year our goal is to raise $60,000. THON is the largest student run charity in the world.  This year, THON and Mini-Thons combined to raise over $15 million. Come out and dance, show solidarity with those families facing cancer with courage.  All proceeds are donated to Four Diamonds, which funds research and helps families afford cancer treatments.  For more information, please visit our website, follow us on Twitter @sburgminithon or Instagram @sburgminithon, and add us on Snap Chat sburg-minithon.
