THON dates set - Beaver students conduct fundraising activities

December 10, 2003

Penn State's annual Dance Marathon (THON) will be held Friday, February 20, beginning at 7 p.m. through Sunday, February 22, at 7 p.m. in Rec Hall at the University Park campus. Penn State Beaver students will participate and are currently conducting a variety of fundraising activities for THON. A talent show held last week, plus ongoing "canning" efforts by the students, will gather funds to be included in the final, University-wide THON tally. THON is the largest student-run philanthropy in the nation and has raised more than $13 million for the Four Diamonds Fund, an organization that provides assistance and support for children with cancer and their families.
