Led by students at The Pennsylvania State University, the Penn State IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon (THON) is a year-long fundraising and awareness campaign in the fight against childhood cancer. This effort engages more than 16,500 students who are committed to one goal: conquering childhood cancer.
Since 1977, THON has raised more than $190 million to benefit Four Diamonds and our mission. To make a gift, visit donate.THON.org
