During December 6-10, students will be selling THON T-shirts with a different color representing each day of the week.  The committee is also planning a dodge ball tournament and other activities.

The Penn State IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon (THON), is the largest student-run philanthropy in the world.  THON is a year-round fundraising event benefiting The Four Diamonds Fund, Conquering Childhood Cancer, at the Penn State Children's Hospital in Hershey, PA.  The year culminates in a no-sitting, no-sleeping, two-day dance marathon held every February.  Over the past 35 years, the students of THON have raised more than $69 million and have helped thousands of children and families fight pediatric cancer. 

Students from Penn State Greater Allegheny raised more than $15,000 last year to fight pediatric cancer for THON.
