THON Dream Forward Campaign Raises $701,331.64 To Kick Off 2020 Total

In a grand total reveal in the HUB, THON announced that it raised $701,331.64 during the last 16 days as part of its first-ever Dream Forward Campaign.

The total exceeds THON’s goal of $500,000 for the campaign by nearly 50%. That amount equates to funding one Four Diamonds research lab for a full month, 156 weeks of child life support, more than 4,000 days of prescription co-pay coverage for Four Diamonds families, and more than 20,000 hours of music therapy sessions.

The THON 5K earlier this month kicked off the new campaign, which replaced the One Day We Will Dance in Celebration THON Campaign. The One Day campaign lasted only a week long each year and raised nearly $1 million for THON in total.

We dance in 115!
