Penn State THON 2013 raises record $12,374,034.26
  by: iradioal - Philadelphia, PA

The annual Penn State 46 hour dance marathon, which was held this weekend from Friday, Feb. 15 6pm. to Sunday, Feb 17 4pm, has raised a record $12,374,034.26. THON benefits pediatric cancer patients with the money going to The Four Diamonds Fund at Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital. This year's total significantly shatters last year's record $10.6 million total.

Throughout the year, Penn State students can be seen at street corners around the state asking for donations from drivers stopped at busy intersections, canning for the cause. The culmination of THON is, of course, the dance marathon which lasts 46 continuous hours and held at the Bryce Jordan Center in State College. The brave souls are the ones who get the special privilege of dancing the entire 46 hours on the stadium floor, they rely on the "moralers" that support them, the visitors they get that show them support, and the 'mail' they can from friends and family throughout the event. Everyone else can stop by to enjoy THON as they please, or now watch the stream from anywhere.

Of course, the generosity of the donors makes THON the tremendous fundraising success for Penn State every year. From the change collected from drivers by coeds in the fall/winter, to big checks written to a Greek/Campus Organization doing fundraising work, every little bit makes a difference.

FTK = For The Kids!
