THON 2016 Raises $9,770,332.32 For The Kids

THON 2016 finished with the total reveal and announced $9,770,332.32 was raised for the kids.


The decrease from 2015 is not a reason to hang your head, especially considering the changes to fundraising this year. Every dollar raised for the kids is something to celebrate, since it’s still going to the people who need it most — Four Diamonds families.

708 dancers stood for 46 hours to join int he fight against pediatric cancer. They finally sat down after successfully standing 46 hours through mail call, a pep rally, and family hour. All for the kids, the cure, and the hope one day we dance in celebration.

If you’re already feeling nostalgic, you can reflect on what was another memorable and special THON weekend by checking out our coverage.

The THON 2016 theme was Believe Beyond Boundaries, and that’s exactly what this year’s fundraising total will go toward: Supporting the dream that we one day dance in celebration of defeating pediatric cancer. The fight against pediatric cancer continues and efforts for THON 2017 starts today.
