March 10 marks Susquehannock High School’s first ever Mini-THON, and the goal this year is to raise a total of ten thousand dollars or more.
There have already been several fundraising events such as the Snow King that happened in January, with winner Chase Summers, and the upcoming fundraising night at Panera Bread.
The Panera Bread fundraiser asks you to bring in the Mini-THON flyer so a portion of the money paid for one’s order will be donated straight to Mini-THON.
After these fund raising events students and staff have raised a total of over three thousand dollars so far.
Now students are wondering “How do I register for Mini-THON?” and “What is my registration fee going towards?”
Spanish teacher and Mini-THON adviser Heather Walker states that the thirty dollar registration fee will be used to pay for the activities and food at the event.
However, a t-shirt is not included in the registration fee.
T-shirts cost a total of ten dollars and forms are due this Wednesday to a Mini-THON adviser.
The first step to register is to pick up a Mini-THON sign up from; these can be found outside Mrs. Walker’s room and Miss. Schoemaker’s room.
After turning in this paper, the next step is to go to the following website in order to finish the registration.
Sophomores Allyson Koller and Alexis Bobby think that students should join Mini-THON.
“It’s a good cause, and all of what we raise goes to Four Diamonds to help kids with cancer,” said Koller.
Bobby was also able to state a fun activity for students who raise over a hundred dollars for Mini-THON.
“If you raise a hundred dollars or more, you are able to sit in a room full of puppies,” said Bobby.
Walker also said that the entire school will be used for the purpose of the Mini-THON with different activities at different parts of the school.
“Well we, will take up the whole school,” said Walker, “Dancing will be in the gym and in the other gym will be basketball, and maybe scooters, badminton.”
Snacks and dinner will also be provided at the event in order to help make sure that students have enough energy to stay on their feet and keep dancing.
The Mini-THON will be held on Friday, March 10, and registration fees and forms will be due on the 22 of February.
