Pennsbury Mini-THON is comprised of 12 different Head Captains, each of whom is in charge of leading their respective committee. Committee include: Family Relations, Finance, Food, Morale, Special Events, Corporate Fundraising, Communications and Technology, Entertainment. There is also a faculty advisor, and 2 overalls who are responsible for the oversight of all committees.
Kendall is an overall chairperson (along with Carissa Van Veen). Our overalls work hard together and alongside all of our other head captains and committee members to help make our event such a huge success. Kendall has been apart of Mini-THON for three years, being promoted from head captain of Communications and Technology to now co-overall. Kendall is very excited to work alongside the PHS Mini-THON team to work hard to fight childhood cancer.
Carissa Van Veen
Carissa is an overall chairperson (along with Kendall Swirles), and is striving to make this year’s Mini-THON the most successful one yet! She, along with the other captains, is putting in a great deal of hard work and dedication to help children struggling with childhood cancer. She was a captain for two years on the Morale committee before becoming overall and is so excited to do even more for the kids.
As faculty advisor, Ms. Meaghan Cappelloni is the adult who has helped to start and grow Pennsbury Mini-THON into what is is today. For the last five years, she has put countless hours in to help Mini-THON to run effectively. Without her and her guidance, Mini-THON would not be nearly as successful as it is today.
