​​​Be a Part of UThon 2017 - March 25!

UThon is modeled after Penn State's famous THON. It is a six-hour dance and dodgeball event to raise money for Four Diamonds, a non-profit organization dedicated to researching cures for pediatric cancer and alleviating the financial burdens that families of children with cancer face. Last year, our event raised over $14,000, and we are hoping to enjoy similar success this year!
Elementary and middle-schoolers and their parents are invited to take part in this special event. We would love for the younger students to come and cheer for our dodgeball teams, play games, and make cards for children with cancer.
UThon will take place on Saturday, March 25th, and elementary and middle school students and their parents are welcome from 3:30 p.m. until 5:30 p.m., at UHS. $5 per person is the cost for registration (all proceeds go directly to Four Diamonds). Donations are also appreciated.
