Hillel Benefitting THON (Formerly LEV)

Hillel Benefitting THON

This is a Hillel-powered organization that benefits Penn State’s Dance MaraTHON. By fundraising for the Four Diamonds Fund, we offer support for our THON child Layn Burger, and his family. We pride ourselves on fostering a meaningful connection with our family and experience with THON for each of our members.

Our Mission:

Our mission is to financially and emotionally support the Four Diamonds Fund. Our year long fundraising efforts culminate in Penn State’s 46-hour no sitting, no sleeping dance maraTHON! We pride ourselves on fostering a meaningful connection with Layn, our THON child, and his family and creating a sense of community for each of our members.

Founded in 2005, as Penn State’s Jewish Organization benefiting THON. Since then, Hillel THON has raised over $200,000. Our THON child Layn is a 14 year-old boy who loves basketball, drawing, and anime. Our THON family includes his two brothers Romeo and Mason, his mother Tami, his dad Lonnie, and stepdad Ralfi.
