[Video] THON 2020 Raises $11,696,942.38 For The Kids

Well, folks. It’s official. THON 2020 raised $11,696,942.38 for the kids this weekend. The results were revealed by the dance marathon’s executive committee in dramatic fashion Sunday afternoon to put an exclamation point on yet another exciting THON Weekend.

The total crushed the previous year’s sum by more than $1 million — an impressive feat considering THON’s new fundraising travel restrictions. However, it still fell short to THON’s overall record of $13,343,517.33, which was set in 2014.

Since 1977, when THON partnered with Four Diamonds, more than $167 million has been raised, not including this 2020’s efforts. One day we’ll dance in celebration, but until then, we dance For The Kids.
