SPRING TWP., Pa. -

Some students from Penn State Berks are in for an unforgettable weekend.

Penn State Berks is sending some students and more than $66,000 to main campus for this weekend's THON dance marathon.

The Penn State Alumni Association donated $9,000 to the cause. Money is also raised through canning events and other fundraisers throughout the year.

Students will be dancing for 46 hours at the Bryce Jordan Center from Friday to Sunday.

Proceeds benefit the Four Diamonds Fund, which supports families battling pediatric cancer.
