THON is the largest student-run philanthropy in the world with over 15,000 volunteers. Every year, we come together as a family and dance 46 hours for Courage, Wisdom, Honesty, and Strength—the qualities a 14-year old Christopher Millard believed were needed to overcome his evil, unpredictable cancer. Unfortunately, Christopher lost his fight, but in his place, The Four Diamonds Fund, THON, and A-7 are doing everything we can to celebrate life and beat cancer. Since 1977, THON's efforts have touched thousands of lives.
This is what we do. We will dance until we beat cancer, and then, we will dance with joy. For The Kids!
