Penn State’s 2022 THON raises record breaking $13.7 million


State College, PA – THON’s annual fundraiser in the fight against pediatric cancer wrapped up their 46-hour dance marathon on Sunday.

The theme this year was Spark Endless Light, with fundraisers happening throughout the past 12 months to benefit the Four Diamonds Fund.

And the total for THON 2022, Spark Endless Light, is a record-breaking $13,756,374.50!

This was a special year because THON is back to in-person celebrations and it also marks the 50th anniversary of THON.

Four students from our area represented Penn State DuBois on the dance floor: Hannah Allen, Haley Rummel, Elise DuFour, and Alena Keen. Although these DuBois students were part of the dance marathon, there were many other Penn State DuBois students, staff, alumni, and community members that helped along the way with other fundraisers, including the hair auction, benefit dinner, raffles, and more.

Thank you to everyone who donated to THON!
