Penn State THON!
Just wanted to give a shout out to all the Penn Staters that participated and donated to THON this year.
Some THON info for those that are not familiar:
THON is the largest student-run philanthropy in the world! The Penn State IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon, affectionately referred to as THON, is a yearlong effort to raise funds and awareness for the fight against pediatric cancer. Since 1977, THON has raised more than $78 million for The Four Diamonds Fund at Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital. Dancers in the dance marathon are on the dance floor for 48 hours, "No Sitting, No Sleeping, No Kidding."
This year's donation: $9,563,016.09!!! Nearly $2 million more then last year
