The 29th annual Hershey High School MiniTHON raised $38,962.83 on March 18, 2022.

The event was held in support of the Four Diamonds Fund and all money raised will be donated. 

According to the Four Diamonds Fund, their mission is to, “conquer childhood cancer by assisting children and their families through superior care, comprehensive support and innovative research.”

Since its start in 1972, the fund has helped over 4,800 children and families cover 100% of their cancer related medical expenses.

Activities at this glow in the dark themed Mini-THON included mini-golf, capture the flag, bubble knockout, and gaga ball. The winner of this year’s modified Mr. Hershey Pageant was senior Shan Wu.
