For The Kids, For The Families

The mission of the Penn State IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon is to conquer pediatric cancer by providing outstanding emotional and financial support to the children, families, researchers, and staff of the Four Diamonds Fund.  FTK!


Welcome to, the online home of the 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 $127 million for the Four Diamonds Fund at Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital.  THON 2015 took place on February 20th-22nd, 2015 at Penn State's Bryce Jordan Center.  We are excited to have you join us as we continue to make strides to find a cure.
