UNIVERSITY PARK, Pennsylvania – Penn State students can finally rest after standing for nearly two full days for the dance marathon known as THON.

This year's THON event raised $ 10,621,683.76.

Each year, students participate in a 46-hour dance marathon to raise funds to help families of pediatric cancer patients pay their drug bills and raise money for research.

Since the beginning of THON in 1973, the dance marathon has raised more than $ 157 million.
