Three THON dancers

THON 2018 weekend begins Feb. 16

It's been a year-long whirlwind of fundraising and fun "for the kids," as Penn State's THON gears up for the grand finale — its dance marathon — beginning at 6 p.m. on Feb. 16 in the Bryce Jordan Center on the University Park campus. The year-long fundraising effort ends this weekend, but the endeavor is so much more than this final dance.
