THON is largest student-run philanthropy in the world! The Penn State IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon, affectionately known as THON, is a yearlong effort to raise funds and awareness for the fight against pediatric cancer. Since 1977, THON has raised more than $89 million for the Four Diamonds Fund at Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital. THON 2013 will take place from February 15th-17th, 2013 at Penn State's Bryce Jordan Center. The Four Diamonds offsets the cost of treatment that insurance does not cover, as well as expenses that may affect the welfare of the child. The Four Diamonds supports the medical team that cares for the children and funds pediatric cancer research through start-up grants and the Four Diamonds Pediatric Cancer Research Institute.
Student organizations and groups at Penn State "adopt" a Four Diamond Family, whom they support throughout the year. At the conclusion of the year long fundraising event, which is THON weekend, Penn State students stay on their feet for 46 hours "dancing" before the announcement of the fundraising total. The Four Diamonds families are in attendance during THON weekend. THON weekend provides Four Diamonds children with a weekend "to be a kid", by means of fashion show, dancing, squirt gun fights, games, and so much more! Check out THON.org for more information!
