THON™ 2009 smashed all records this year to post a total of $7,490,133.87 For the Kids. Coming back to Penn State to be a part of the largest and most successful student-run philanthropy in the world were hundreds of former THON™ dancers and volunteers.

THON™ alumni connected with each other, supported this year’s 708 dancers, and attended THON™ events throughout the weekend, including activities sponsored by the Dance Marathon Alumni Interest Group (DMAIG). DMAIG was also represented by its alumni dancers: Dan Cocco ’08, Nutley, N.J. (who just last year was THON’s overall chair leading the entire 2008 effort); Elizabeth Han ’91, Hummelstown, Pa.; Ian Rickenbach ’08, Inkerman, Pa.; and Sean Shapiro ’08, New York City. The four collectively raised $40,000 For the Kids.
