THON, Penn State's IFC/ Panhellenic Dance Marathon, is the largest student run philanthropy in the world. Students raise money throughout the year to help the fight against pediatric cancer and the families that go through it. All the money raised goes to the Four Diamonds fund to assist those in need. The end the fundraising effort each year there is a 46 hour no sitting no sleeping dance marathon. SSAE proudly helps fundraise for THON through canning, pie exec in the face and many other efforts.
In 2018 as a club we proudly raised $8,104.60 towards the total of $10,151,663.93
SSAE has been participating in THON for a numbers of years and five years ago we were paired with the Smucker Family! Throughout the year we have gotten together with the family for picnics and other fun events to help build our relationship with them.
