In just one week, the yearlong efforts of more than 16,500 student volunteers and 25,000 alumni will culminate in an annual forty-six-hour, no-sitting, no-sleeping dance marathon. For those forty-six hours, the Bryce Jordan Center will transform into a home of boundless energy, lively colors, and endless laughter all in support of families affected by childhood cancer.
From February 15-17, the Penn State community will once again stand together to show what cancer cannot do. Since 1977, THON has raised more than $157 million for our sole beneficiary, Four Diamonds. THON’s contributions cover the cost of treatment for childhood cancer patients at Penn State Children’s Hospital, ensuring that no family ever receives a medical bill. THON’s support also funds innovative cancer research, helping to advance cancer research worldwide.
Join us in the fight against childhood cancer by making a gift today. With the help of our generous supporters, we will one day dance in celebration of a cure.
