46 hours on their feet, millions raised – Why?
For The Kids!

Update: THON 2016 completed February 21, 2016 raising nearly $10 million to fight pediatric cancer! But it’s never too late to donate at http://thon.org.

Penn State’s Dance Marathon – 46 hours on your feet and dancing. Even the thousands of spectators and supporters who crowd the arena remain on their feet to honor the dancers and the kids. Billed as the world’s largest student-run philanthropy, THON raised nearly $10 MILLION this year, $137 million since 1973! The Four Diamonds Fund at the Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital is the beneficiary. Defeating pediatric cancer is the goal with funds supporting treatment, families and medical research. Eagerly anticipated by the thousands of participating PSU students and even more so by the many families who benefit and attend, the dance marathon is the culmination of the year’s fundraising activities.

Update: THON 2015 again raised more than $13 million For The Kids! That makes more than $127 million to fight pediatric cancer since THON raised $28,685 in 1977. When 78 participants raised $2,000 for the Butler County Association for Retarded Children at the first Dance Marathon in 1973, who could have imagined that it would grow into the largest student-run philanthropy in the world. We are…Very Proud!

Update: ANOTHER RECORD! The 2014 event raised more than $13 million! Extraordinary and getting even better!!

$12,374,034.46 raised for the fight against pediatric cancer! A new record.
Congratulations Penn State students and THANK YOU!
