The Best Of #THON2024 TikTok

THON 2024 was one for the books and with it came some awesome TikTok content.

Dancers and spectators packed the Bryce Jordan Center for 46 hours to raise $16,955,683.63, awareness, and support for pediatric cancer. Along with an unbelievable weekend came some equally amazing TikToks.

Here are some of our favorite #THON2024 TikToks.

The official Penn State account began strong with a good introduction video to start the weekend. A compilation of dancers entering the BJC, standing up, and learning the line dance hyped viewers for the 46-hour dance marathon ahead.

Seeing the dancers before and after the weekend really illustrates all that goes into THON and how special the experience is for dancers.

It’s always funny seeing predictions for the national performer, even if some were pipe dreams.

Ultimately, WALK THE MOON graced the THON stage for a special performance of its hits, including “Shut Up and Dance.”


On Friday, we asked our members, β€œWho do you think the @Penn State THONβ„’ Surprise Performer will be?!” Heres what they said! πŸ‘€ #AtlasPSU #AtlasTHON #THON #FTK #THON2024 #walkthemoonband #pennstate

Taylor Swift, please make this happen. We’re begging you.

Walk the Moon’s national performance was epic and seeing dancers jamming out made the performance that much better.
