Another year, another big total raised by the members of the Penn State Dance Marathon.

THON, which has been raising money for the fight against pediatric cancer in conjunction with the Four Diamonds Fund since the 1970s, toppled the ten-million-dollar mark once again in 2018. The year-long fundraising effort ended this weekend with the normal 46-hour no-sitting, no-sleeping, on-your-feet party in the Bryce Jordan Center with 707 dancers taking part on the floor and thousands of supporters cheering them, as well as the kids who made it to State College for the weekend, on.
Congratulations, Penn State!
