RHS Mini-THON Raises Money for Pediatric Cancer this Weekend

The Roxbury High School mini-THON welcomes students and community members to come cheer on the mini-THON dancers as they dance all night to support the fight against pediatric cancer beginning Friday, April 7th at 7:00 p.m. in the RHS gymnasium. 

More than 400 students are pre-registered for this event, including current RHS students, some RHS alumni, and a few students from neighboring districts who want to help support the cause.

Mike Gottfried, Key Club co-advisor and overseer of the Mini-Thon shared that “Students will be taking a stand overnight to support the fight against pediatric cancer. The purpose is to increase our impact through greater involvement, as well as show our support to families who are going through these difficult times.”

This year’s Mini-Thon is an overnight event that begins Friday, April 7th officially at 7 p.m. and goes until 8 a.m. the following morning.

District students and community members wishing to cheer on the dancers are invited to the official kick off at 7 p.m. and can stay until 11 p.m. At that time, all students and guests will be asked to work their way towards the doors as only those who are pre-registered will be allowed to stay overnight.

“During their time standing (and awake), we will have a kick-off where we will bring in a student who had cancer, who will share their story. There will be a DJ, live bands (including a few student bands and faculty guest performances), and student dance performances between 8 and 11 p.m. Every hour we will have a student-led line dance. We will also feature a “Color Wars” – where students will compete in various teams in various games/events. Around 6 a.m., we will have Zumba, a fan favorite. Students will also be fed three meals during this time,” shared Gottfried. 

The Roxbury High School Mini-THON technically falls under the Key Club. However, it operates as its own group within the club with student captains and members.

Funds raised during this event will be donated to the Four Diamonds, which covers medical bills for families as well as cancer research.

Roxbury High School mini-THON has raised over $39,900 over the past three years when holding this event and we’re sure that number will continue to grow after Saturday!

Students and the community can still donate online to help them reach their goal at https://fourdiamonds.donordrive.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=donate.event&eventID=1509.
