The Penn State Dance Marathon volunteer base is a tight-knit community where students actively work together in the fight against pediatric cancer. THON Volunteers do not quit this fight after leaving Penn State, however; THON instills a life-long commitment to philanthropic service and leadership. Anually, more than 15,000 Penn State student volunteers are joined by Penn State alumni from THON’s ‘Dance Marathon Alumni Interest Group’, better known as Dance Marathon AIG.

Dance Marathon AIG is a Penn State Alumni Association sponsored Alumni Interest Group (AIG) designed to bring THON alumni together and keep them connected to one of Penn State's most beloved traditions. Through Dance Marathon AIG, THON alumni can continue to support regional events, compete for the opportunity to dance in THON, and keep in touch with old friends.

Dance Marathon AIG promises to promote a continuing relationship between students and alumni who involved in THON by providing opportunities for alumni to donate their time, money, and resources. Through Dance Marathon AIG, Penn State alumni can continue to work through THON in the quest to conquer pediatric cancer. Get involved today by visiting this link
