Thank You For Supporting Our Penn State Harrisburg THON Dancers
Your generosity is greatly appreciated.
The Penn State Dance Marathon was first organized in 1973 by a group of students seeking an opportunity to give back to their community. This idea has since grown into the largest student-run philanthropy in the world: THON. Each year, more than 16,500 student volunteers from across all campuses participate in the year-long fundraising efforts to benefit our sole beneficiary, Four Diamonds at Penn State Children's Hospital.
Like everything else this past year, THON 2021 had to be altered to comply with COVID-19 guidelines, but it didn't stop this group of incredible students. THON 2021 raised a total of $10,638,078.62 - not as much as previous years, but an amazing total none the less. With your help, Penn State Harrisburg Benefiting THON raised over $30,000 toward the overall THON 2021 total. With your doinations of $2,200, the Capital Chapter is pleased to announce that we donated $4,500 to Penn State Harrisburg's contribution to the overall $10.6 million. THANK YOU!!
