IASHS Luminary Sale for MiniTHON

MiniTHON Luminaries!

Want to honor your loved ones who are or have battled cancer? Purchase a luminary to commemorate them at this year's MiniTHON Luminary Walk!

IHS Leadership Seminar is hosting our annual MiniTHON. Modeled after Penn State's THON, MiniTHON brings our school community together to raise money for the Four Diamonds Foundation, a program that's mission is to conquer childhood cancer by assisting children and their families through superior care, comprehensive support and innovative research.

Every year the students of IHS come together for an event where we stand 'For The Kids' and participate in a variety of activities. A portion of the night is dedicated to a luminary walk during which we honor those affected by cancer. We use this time to remember our loved ones: the survivors, the fighters, and the ones who have lost their battles.

It is an important moment of reflection, and we'd like to be able to commemorate as many individuals in our community as possible. If you would like to purchase a luminary in honor of a loved one to be displayed at this year's luminary walk, please let us know below.

Luminaries are $2.00 each. All of the proceeds go directly towards our total funds raised for Four Diamonds.
