For many, THON has become a yearly tradition, reuniting with old classmates, friends, and family. The Dance Marathon Alumni Interest Group (DMAIG) aims to provide a weekend full of activities allowing you to reunite with your THON family, continuing to make a difference in the lives of those affected by cancer, through support of the Four Diamonds Fund & The Penn State Dance Marathon. DMAIG with the help of the current undergraduate leadership of THON, have put together activities, which will allow you to tour the BJC, learn the line dance, catch up with THON families, and even a chance to visit the floor.
