The Penn State IFC/Panhellenic Dance MaraTHON is an annual, year-round fundraising event for The Four Diamonds Fund, at the Penn State Children’s Hospital in Hershey, PA. Over the past 40 years, the students of Penn State have raised over $80 million and continue to lend support to thousands of children and families fighting pediatric cancer. The year culminates in a no-sitting, no-sleeping, 46-hour dance maraTHON held every February. Over the years, THON has raised more than $136 million to support families in paying for pediatric cancer treatment and facilitate research. This collective effort, involving more than 16,000 students, has become one of Penn State’s greatest and most unifying traditions. As a percentage of Infusion's proceeds goes towards THON, your sponsorship will benefit a great cause.

American India Foundation
In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, many migrant workers in India found themselves homeless and unemployed during their seasonal migration. As per the World Bank, more than 40 million of these migrants have been devastated by COVID-19 induced socio-economic distress. The America India Foundation has been working tirelessly in 17 states to provide COVID relief to these workers in the form of comprehensive hygiene kits, masks, medical supplies, and educational materials.
Through our online platform and social media presence, Infusion was able to raise more than $400 for AIF’s Rebuilding Lives campaign, which is a comprehensive effort to assist those affected by COVID in migrant communities in India.
