4 Weeks for 4 Diamonds- THON

4 Weeks for 4 Diamonds- THON

THON is the largest student-run philanthropy in the world! The Penn State IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon, affectionately referred to as “THON”, is excited to have you join them in their fight to conquer childhood cancer.

In 1973, a small group of dedicated Penn State students held Penn State’s first Dance Marathon. That year, 34 dancers participated and raised $2,000. Since then, THON’s presence in the Penn State community has grown exponentially. THON now has 15,000 student volunteers, 700 dancers, and has raised more than $89 million, benefiting The Four Diamonds Fund at Penn State Children’s Hospital. THON is now a year-long effort that raises funds and awareness for the fight against pediatric cancer. With the support of students from all across the commonwealth of Pennsylvania and THON Alumni all around the world, we continue to make great strides towards finding a cure for all childhood cancers.

Lions Pride will be donating 20% of their entire sales from January 21st until February 17th to the 2013 Penn State Dance Marathon. THON will be held February 15-17 at the Bryce Jordan Center.
