Good Luck to All My THON Dolls!

Khloe Kardashian sheds light on THON, the Penn State Dance Marathon, an organization that raises money for pediatric cancer.
I just wanted to take a moment to wish all of my dolls dancing at THON or working at THON the best of luck during this incredible weekend!!! For those of you who don’t know, THON (Penn State Dance Marathon) is the biggest student-run philanthropy in the world and it raises money for pediatric cancer. The students work all year raising money in any way they can, and the year culminates in a 46 hour no-sitting, no-sleeping dance marathon. Can you guys imagine 46 hours on your feet with NO sleep?! INSANE!!!!!! I’m told by people who have participated though that what keeps them going is the knowledge that the blisters, shin splints, burning eyes, and exhaustion are nothing compared to what these children endure. So that’s how they power through. Truly inspiring!

Last year THON raised $7,838,054 for the kids. Let’s help them break $8 MILLION this year!!!! WOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOO! I’ll be checking in as often as I can via Twitter this weekend — I’m pretty sure dancers can tweet from THON. I’m so excited for all of you and I hope you’re ready for one of the hardest, yet most incredible weekends of your life!

Head over to to donate and to learn more about this wonderful cause and watch the video below for a closer look at what THON is really all about :)

    Dear Khloe -
    I just left you 2 posts on Facebook. My husband and many of his family are HUGE PSU alum/fans and support THON as well. Congrats on a wonderful cause. Please find my posts and look at our website to see what we are doing to help families DONATE umbilical cord blood to help treat not only our son MASON’s disease but many other childhood/adult cancers, sickle cell, cystic fibrosis, and with more research…many more diseases. I would LOVE to talk with you about joining efforts and support.
    All admiration and respect,
    Sarah Shaffer
