Boyertown mini-thon underway

BOYERTOWN, Pa. -

 Students in Boyertown are getting ready to "twist the night away."

Boyertown Area Senior High School's third annual mini-THON is underway and wraps up Saturday morning at 6:00.

Students dance and play games and do whatever they have to do to stay on their feet for 12 straight hours.

The event raises money for the Four Diamonds Fund-- an organization that helps families battling pediatric cancer.

Last year's mini-THON raised $23,000.  This year they're going for $30,000.
