Penn State. WE ARE!!! Penn State has this amazing tradition that you should know about called Thon. The Penn State IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon, affectionately known as THON, is a yearlong effort to raise funds and awareness for the fight against pediatric cancer. Since 1977, THON has raised more than $114 million for the Four Diamonds Fund at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital. THON 2015 will take place on February 20th-22nd, 2015 at Penn State’s Bryce Jordan Center.
A Penn State student named Marshall Lefferts was diagnosed with Leukemia in the Penn State Hershey Cancer Institute on November 14th. His post in his Facebook Class Group about his story was something so amazing that we needed to share. Check it out below:
