One weekend every February, hundreds of volunteer dancers push their physical limits in the name of curing childhood cancer. It's called THON Weekend, and it's held at Penn State University's Bryce Jordan Center near Highwoods at Toftrees. For 46 hours, more than 700 committed philanthropists (mostly Penn State students) remain on their feet to raise money for the Four Diamonds Fund.

Over the past few years, THON has raised millions upon millions of dollars for childhood cancer research. Over the course of the weekend, you can come to cheer on the participants and witness the unique entertainment unfolding onstage. Inspirational speakers, local bands, and performances by the pint-sized beneficiaries of the Four Diamonds organization keep the dancers excited and energized until the final hour of THON. Don't miss your chance to come and support the dancers from February 16th to 18th as they groove toward a cancer-free future for all kids.
