[Photo Story] Sunday’s Events Serve As THON 2024’s Grand Finale

THON 2024 is officially in the books, folks.

The final day of THON Weekend was full of emotional moments, amazing performances, and the grand reveal of THON 2024’s $16,955,683.63 total.

As always, our photographers were at the Bryce Jordan Center to capture all the memories. Let’s take a look back at some of our favorite photos and recap Sunday’s events.

Early morning hours don’t mean the music stops! Sunday got kicked off with some music performances from a few groups, including “Late For Breakfast” and “The Statesmen.”

The early morning hours also make for a good time to clean the BJC floor.

“Adam & The Armadillos” headlined THON’s Country Hour, rocking the Bryce Jordan Center with hits by Zach Bryan, Morgan Wallen, and Luke Combs, among others.

THON regulars “Ok Otter” were next up as the crowd began to grow for the day.

Next up was the Kids’ Fashion Show, where Four Diamonds kids and their friends and families got to show off their sense of style with some fun costumes.

The good times kept rolling with a set by DJ Zyrten, followed by the performance of line dances from 2019 to 2024.

Some Four Diamonds families shared their experiences and stories of pediatric cancer on stage during Family Hour.

Before the final reveal, Go Go Gadjet put on an electric set that had the BJC boomin‘.

Finally, it was time for the grand reveal. This year, THON raised a record $16,955,683.63 For The Kids.
