Club Cross Country Benefiting THON
One day we will dance (and run) in celebration.
Until then we will dance for a cure.

What is THON?
The Penn State IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon is the largest student-run philanthropy in the world, with all proceeds benefiting Four Diamonds at the Penn State Hershey Medical Center. Each year, it culminates in a 46-hour, no-sitting, no-sleeping dance marathon at the Bryce Jordan Center. Since 1977, THON has raised over $147 million for Four Diamonds, engaging over 16,500 student volunteers annually. Check out the video below showing Club XC at THON 2018.
What is Club XC’s involvement in THON?
Club Cross Country participates in THON as a general organization, raising money through various fundraisers and operating on our own behalf, with proceeds contributing to THON’s annual total each year. Some of the fundraisers we hold annually include canvassing, THONvelopes, and the Donut Dash 5K. Our most successful fundraiser for the past few years has been Miles for Smiles, a 46-hour treadmill relay. Club XC is proud to be paired with three awesome families through the Adopt-a-Family program: the Justin Kaufman, Bryce Carter, and Gideon Fisher families!
In 2018, Club XC contributed $54,660.61 to THON.
