Penn State DuBois Students Contribute to THON's $12 Million Total
Students at Penn State DuBois once again contributed to a record breaking year at THON. Overall, Penn State's dance marathon raised $12,375,034 for the Four Diamonds Fund, which benefits pediatric cancer research. The THON Committee contributed $11,849.09 to that sum.
DuBois students Louise Whyte of DuBois, and Jordan Eisman of Brockway served as the campus' 2013 THON dancers. The pair represented Penn State DuBois at THON, and stayed on their feet for 46 hours straight from February 15, through February 17, at the Bryce Jordan Center.
Students at Penn State DuBois raise funds for THON in a variety of ways. Fundraisers include canning drives, the THON Haircut, where volunteers let others cut their hair in exchange for a donation, dinner events, and more.
