Penn State Fayette THON Team sets new fundraising record

2/22/2010 —
The Penn State Fayette THON Team led the Penn State Commonwealth campuses in fundraising again, raising $75,830.25 to fight pediatric cancer. Across the University, students raised a record $7,838,054.36 for THON.

Fayette THON Team dancers and members attended the 2010 THON event at University Park this weekend, where thousands of THON team members and dancers from across Penn State University gathered for this annual event.

THON is a year-round fundraising event benefiting The Four Diamonds Fund, which is striving to conquer childhood cancer by assisting children treated at Penn State Children’s Hospital and their families through superior care, comprehensive support, and innovative research.

This is the 13th year for the Fayette THON Team. Among Penn State’s 19 Commonwealth Campuses, the Fayette THON Team has been in the No. 1 spot 11 years; the team placed second in 2005 and 2006.
