About THON

Every school day, 43 children are diagnosed with one of more than 12 types and over 100 subtypes of pediatric cancer, and WE ARE fighting to cure them all! As the largest student-run philanthropy in the world, the Penn State Dance Marathon has raised more than $219 million to support pediatric cancer research, treatment, and patient support at the Penn State Children’s Hospital in Hershey, PA. THON’s sole beneficiary, the Four Diamonds Fund, covers 100% of patient medical expenses not covered by insurance for eligible children, including household utilities, travel, food, and gas so families can be with their children during treatment. Because of the community’s steady and generous support, no Four Diamonds Family has ever received a single bill. To learn more about THON and Four Diamonds, visit www.thon.org and www.fourdiamonds.org
