UMAHS Breaks Records As They Raise Over $31,000 At Their Annual Mini-THON!
Mini-THON 2019! What an amazing night! Over 200 HS students danced, played and stayed on their feet for over 6 hours to help in the fight against pediatric cancer. Before the night even began, the financial goal for the evening had been met! The UMAHS Mini-THON team had hoped to raise over $22,000. That was achieved before the start of the night, but at the big reveal at the end of the evening the huge total of $31,340.06 was revealed to the enthusiastic crowd. While many students contributed as leaders on committees, committee members, and top donors, the four student heads below went above and beyond for this event:
Senior Heads: Lauren Del Giudice & CJ Besz
Junior Heads: Jill Demcher & Olivia Barr
Students held many special events throughout the year to help us meet our goal including a Fall Sports "Gold Out" week, Car Decorating contest, ClassH-Room game show on Fox 29 TV, Color Run, and Dining Night Out events. Two new events were added this year, a VIP puppy room for donors who raised over $100 and a Cut-A-THON where students could donate their hair to help cancer patients. Our 3 Family Hour speakers included sophomore Jacob Lempert, freshman Rose West, and community members The Auth family who shared their stories of what it is like to experience pediatric cancer.
