Despite 1.25 years of bad PR, Penn State University has at least one prominent fan still trumpeting its cause: Khloe Kardashian.

Khloe first learned about THON, the two-day, non-stop dance marathon during which Penn State students raise money to fight pediatric cancer, in late 201o and wrote about it on her blog.
It’s the biggest student run philanthropy in the world, having raised over $61 million in the past 35 years. Each year culminates in a 46-hour no sitting, no sleeping dance marathon involving over 15,000 student volunteers. It’s comforting and truly inspiring to know that because of these students’ devotion, families have received the support they need, both financially and emotionally.
It’s all going down this weekend, at the glamorous, Kardashian-approved Bryce Jordan Center, in State College.
