Approximately 150 students spent 12 hours Saturday participating in a variety of events as they worked to raise $15,000 for The Four Diamonds Pediatric Cancer Research Center.

There was the hourly line dance, the limba, karaoke, volleyball and a host of other games taking place in the high school gymnasium. For visitors, in the cyber commons, there was a raffle, coloring, Wii games and Twister.

The school joined more than 90,000 students in what has become a powerful movement to conquer childhood cancer.

Four Diamonds supports more than 80 pediatric oncology research professionals at Penn State College of Medicine who conduct cancer research.
