Penn State Dance Marathon Raises Record $12.37-Million
A 46-hour, no-sitting-or-sleeping-allowed dance marathon this weekend at Penn State raised more than $12-million for pediatric cancer research and care.
The total shattered last year's record-breaking total by nearly $1.7-million. The announcement delivered by student organizers to more than 700 dancers and thousands of volunteers, along with cancer patients and their families, concluded the weekend-long IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon at 4:00PM on Sunday.
The event commonly known as "THON" is billed as the largest student-run philanthropy in the world. Counting Sunday's total, students have now raised more than $100-million for the Four Diamonds Fund at Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital since 1977.
