Yesterday, Trisha Comstock announced the big kick off for the Bellwood-Antis High School mini-THON donor drive.

A representative from the Four Diamonds organization, Comstock said while students have fun at Mini THON activities, but there is nothing fun about a child with cancer.

The purpose of this assembly is to introduce donor drive a month earlier than usual so mini-THON organizers can utilize it more effectively in reaching their goal.

Mini THON is an event that raises money for children with cancer for Four Diamonds. Four Diamonds helps pay for all of the medical expenses that parents have to go through when their child develops cancer. 

Since 2018, B-A has hosted a mini-THON event and conducted several fundraising campaigns. Last year, B-A’s mini-THON  made $25,000 dollars, and the goal is to beat 25k again.

Students can help by creating their own fundraisers for the school and raising their own specified amounts. 

Mini-THON organizers have created a link to the Bellwood-Antis mini-THON page if anyone wants to make their own fundraising page or support a student at this high school.

The mini-THON fundraising drive will run up through February, while the mini-THON dance event will be held at the high school on February 28.
