"One day we will dance in celebration. Until then, we will dance for a cure."
Every school day, 43 children are diagnosed with one of more than 12 types and over 100 subtypes of pediatric cancer, and WE ARE fighting to cure them all!
The Penn State Dance Marathon (THON) is the largest student-run philanthropy in the world, raising more than $200 million to support pediatric cancer research, treatment, & patient support at Penn State Children's Hospital in Hershey, PA. THON's sole beneficiary, Four Diamonds Fund, covers 100% of patient expenses not covered by insurance, ensuring that no Four Diamonds family ever receives a single bill.
Since 2008, the Blue White Ball has contributed nearly $200,000 to THON and Four Diamonds! The Ball features dinner, open bar, raffles and an extensive silent auction, as well as a program featuring Special Honored Guest Speakers to inspire us to action.
