Mini-THON

Radnor Middle School is hosting its fifth annual multi-hour dance marathon on Friday, May 6 at 4 p.m. to raise funds to support Four Diamonds at Penn State Children's Hospital.

In 2021, students, teachers and staff joined together and raised more than $81,000, bringing the four year total to over $290,000.

The student led Mini-THON committee inspires the student body and Radnor community to get involved and participate in monthly fundraisers. The funds raised will help cover expenses for families with children battling childhood cancer. The funds also support a comprehensive team of researchers that are looking for a cure.

Student participation is encouraged and registration is required.
