THON 2022 Raises $13,756,374.50 For The Kids

To cap off its return to the Bryce Jordan Center, THON 2022 announced it raised $13,756,374.50 For The Kids!

The total breaks THON’s overall record — a whopping $13,343,517.33 from back in 2014. Money aside, 667 dancers boldly stood for 46 hours this weekend to help fight pediatric cancer, and that’s something everyone can feel very proud of, too.

Since 1977, when THON officially partnered with Four Diamonds, the annual dance marathon has raised about $190 million excluding THON 2021’s total. Until we find a cure, we’ll keep dancing For The Kids.

Once you’re done reading, enjoy a long night of sleep. You’ve earned it. And before you know it, we’ll be back at the Bryce Jordan Center and dancing together next February. See you then!
