News brief: Mini-Thon

Fin Reed
The Mini-Thon is being hosted at the school gymnasium with a bunch of fun music and games to play. Eighth grader Addison Mitchel said, “Our goal is to just raise as much money as possible for Diamonds.”

Mini-Thon is coming to town in hopes of fundraising money for treatment and cancer research.

This first time charity event will be held at our school. Students will be standing and dancing for four hours for the ones who can’t.

The student council is hoping that this event will go on for many more years.

Eighth grader Addison Mitchel said, “I’d just like to say that this will be a super fun event. I hope everyone who comes has a great time, and I can’t wait for this to happen for years to come.”

The Mini-Thon will be happening on April 22 at the school gymnasium. Admission is $10 and the event lasts from 6-10 p.m. We hope to see you there!
