What is THON?

The Penn State IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon, or THON, is the largest student-run philanthropy in the world. THON is a year-long effort which raises funds and awareness for the fight against childhood cancer. With the support of students from all across the commonwealth of Pennsylvania and supporters all around the world, we continue to make great strides towards finding a cure for all childhood cancers. Our efforts culminate with a two day, no-sitting, no-sleeping dance marathon in February.

When is THON?

The 46-hour no-sitting, no-sleeping dance marathon will be held February 19th-21st, 2016 in the Bryce Jordan Center.
