U.S. Senate congratulates Thon on success

The U.S. Senate passed a resolution Tuesday congratulating the IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon on its success, according to a Penn State news release.

The 46th annual event raised $13.3 million last month for the fight against pediatric cancer. Thon is the largest student-run philanthropy in the world, and it has raised more than $113 million for the Four Diamonds Fund.

The resolution, co-sponsored by Sens. Bob Casey and Pat Toomey, of Pennsylvania, acknowledged Thon’s continued support of the Four Diamonds Fund at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital, according to the news release.
