Why We Dance: The Story of THON Viewings
Why We Dance: The Story of THON is a documentary project that chronicles the student-run philanthropy, THON, and the children, families, and students who are changed by their experience.
To many people, THON is a weekend-long event with 46 straight hours of dancing. What they may not see is an entire year spent raising awareness and money to conquer childhood cancer. Why We Dance: The Story of THON will introduce you to the inspirational children battling cancer and the Penn State students who participate in THON, dedicating themselves to making a difference for others.
As the THON clock ticks down on hour 46, not a soul is left unchanged. When Why We Dance: The Story of THON airs as a 60-minute public television documentary, viewers will be touched by the selflessness of their fellow mankind. Click here for more information on the documentary.
