This year was the first time that Penn State World Campus had students participate in the Penn State IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon, or THON.
The group World Campus for THON sent three students from its executive board to participate in the 46-hour event from February 11 to 13. The group raised more than $4,000, which exceeded its goal of $3,000, that contributed toward the total amount raised, $13.7 million.
The money raised by Penn State students benefits the Four Diamonds Fund at the Penn State Health Children's Hospital. THON is a celebration of the fundraising efforts and takes place each February.
