Thanks to our buddy Jason in Vancouver, love this one!!
Students at Penn State University have raised a whopping $15 million during their annual 46-hour ‘no sleeping or sitting’ dance marathon.
It was an all-time record high and will benefit a national nonprofit fund that covers 100% of all medical expenses for families with childhood cancer.
They call it THON, a dance party that’s the world’s largest student-run philanthropy program, which delivers year-round financial and emotional aid to families dealing with childhood cancer.
This is the 51st year of the nonprofit and this year, over 707 dancers participated in the organization’s iconic dance marathon that began the evening of Friday Feb. 17 and ran nonstop until 4:00 p.m. on Sunday operating with over 16,000 student volunteers.
