Penn State THON

Charity Supported: 
Event Description: 
Penn State THON efforts culminate in a 46-hour no-sleeping, no-sitting dance marathon held every February. Students, volunteers, and Four Diamonds families join together in Penn State’s Bryce Jordan Center. For 46 hours, volunteers give kids and their families the opportunity to forget about their cancer diagnosis. 700+ students are recognized as dancers for THON Weekend, a feat that entails standing on their feet for the entirety of the weekend. This year's total at THON was $10,045,478.44--it was an honor for our Base to be a part of it
