STUDENTS RAISE MORE THAN $1500 FOR PEDIATRIC CANCER

1/22/2010 —

More than 70 Penn State Brandywine community members raised more than $1,500 in just two and a half hours by creating human sundaes and bidding on items such as theater and museum tickets, spa treatments, paintings and much more. Gill was one of only two students from the campus chosen to dance for 46 hours at the IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon beginning on February 19 at the Bryce Jordan Center in University Park to raise money for the Four Diamonds Fund at Penn State Children's Hospital. THON, which strives to raise funds and awareness about the fight against pediatric cancer, has raised more than $61 million since inception in 1977.
