The Penn State IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon strives to maintain its transparency to the public. With the multitude of charities today, THON recognizes the responsibility it has to provide all of its donors, volunteers, and supporters with updated information on the effectiveness of both their time and donations.
Because THON is a completely student-run organization, it has a unique ability to maximize each donation, ensuring that no child ever gets denied cancer treatment because the family cannot afford it. With THON’s donations, Four Diamonds at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital can provide each family with access to superior care, comprehensive support, and innovative cancer research.
