South Williamsport Area High School gears up for third annual MiniTHON

The South Williamsport Area High School student body will host its third annual MiniTHON from 7 p.m. March 21 to 7 a.m. March 22 at the high school. The event is open to the public from 7 to 11 p.m. March 21.

MiniTHON is a 12 hour dance marathon modeled after Penn State University’s THON. Last year the mountaineers raised more than $25,000 to aid in medical treatment, research and family financial aid to children and their families fighting childhood cancer at Penn State Hershey’s Children’s Hospital.

This year’s goal is to raise more than $32,000.
