ATO/ZTA Leads Top THON 2024 Fundraisers

The THON 2024 donation window has officially closed, and every dollar has been counted. While every cent from each volunteer, donor, and supporter is crucial to the fight against pediatric cancer, there were a few organizations that really set the bar high for the amount that was raised.

Alpha Tau Omega and Zeta Tau Alpha were the two largest fundraisers of any organization type, bringing in a total of $509,207.75. Atlas led the charge for special interest organizations with an impressive $227,754.46.

Taylor Sekelsky and Dani Sekelsky raised the most among independent dancer couples with $50,464.25.
