THON is a yearlong effort that raises funds and awareness for the fight against pediatric cancer. Every February, a year's worth of fundraising ends with a 46-hour dance marathon at Penn State University Park. Students as well as pediatric cancer patients and their families can relax, have fun, and share stories of courage and inspiration.
THON is the largest student run philanthropy in the world because of the support it receives from students across the Penn State system. THON has raised more than $80 million to benefit The Four Diamonds Fund at Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital.
