Lower Moreland’s Mini -THON is an official branch of Penn State’s Dance Marathon (THON), the largest student-run philanthropy in the world. All proceeds from THON and Mini-THON benefit the Four Diamonds Fund at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital.
The Four Diamonds Fund is an organization devoted to fighting pediatric cancer. Lower Moreland's Mini -THON consists of 12 consecutive hours during which students may not sit, squat, or kneel; they may only stand, dance, and participate in numerous competitions and activities organized for them throughout the day.
Last year, Lower Moreland High School raised $130,510.59, and we have set the bar even higher for 2014 as we work to break the $500,000 mark for total money raised in our 8 years as an organization.

THON season is heating up! This past week, we had our annual kick-off meeting during which underclassmen learned about THON and had the chance to sign up for one of our 13 committees. This way, they will be able to help plan THON and prepare to be the next generation of committee captains. The room was packed, and everyone’s positive energy was incredible!
