Since 2002, hundreds to thousands of students, faculty and staff have come together to shake it on the dance floor and raise funds and awareness for kids affected by cancer.
This year, participants went above and beyond — moving, shaking, cheering and shouting — to raise more than $1.7 million to support this important cause. Check out some amazing photos of this year’s event and relive the excitement of one of the best BuckeyeThons yet.
