Organized in 1973, Penn State THON is a philanthropic student-run organization designed to support the families of children dealing with cancer. In addition to offering emotional and financial support, the organization promotes awareness of the ongoing need for funding of cancer research. As the largest student-run philanthropic organization in the world, THON has raised more than $147 million, helping over 3,700 families since it began.
Every February, THON completes its yearlong fundraising efforts with THON Weekend, a 46-hour dance marathon for students, kids, and families. For the duration of the dance-a-thon, which takes place at the Bryce Jordan Center at Penn State, participants are not allowed to sit down or sleep. Learn more at
