Penn State Berks raises over $34,000 for THON

The Berks Benefitting THON student organization at Penn State Berks raised $34,090 and earned the fifth spot among Penn State Commonwealth Campuses. The results were announced Sunday at the end of the 46-hour dance marathon to benefit Four Diamonds.

The overall total raised for THON 2024 was $16,955,683, breaking THON’s yearly record for the third year in a row.

Penn State students from every campus gathered at the Bryce Jordan Center at Penn State University Park for THON — the 46-hour no-sitting, no-sleeping dance marathon to benefit Four Diamonds — that supports families battling pediatric cancer.

This year’s dancers from Berks included seniors Sydney Bankert and Samantha Hagenbush, both kinesiology majors, and sophomores Manali Desai, finance major, and Mariem Hanna, civil engineering major.

The students hosted fundraisers throughout the year, including Cuts for Kids, Pie in the Face, and the Inspire the Night benefit dinner, which raised over $16,922.
