Story

Introducing the 7th annual Hope From Coast to Coast 2023 presented by the Dance Marathon Alumni Interest Group (DMAIG)!

In 2016, Hope From Coast to Coast (HFC2C) was formed by DMAIG to provide an outlet for Penn State Alumni to fundraise for the Penn State Dance Marathon (THON). THON is the largest student run philanthropy that fundraises all year, culminating in a 46 hour Dance Marathon in February. Alumni would fundraise starting in November until THON Weekend. To celebrate their fundraising efforts, participants would run/walk as many miles as they could during the week leading up to THON weekend. Since it's inception, alumni have run/walked well over 5,000 miles and donated over $80,000 to THON through the HFC2C event.

This year, participants can get involved in Hope From Coast to Coast through our in-person event or virtual challenge.
