The HOLLYWOOD DANCE MARATHON is a high-energy charity benefit to help fight pediatric cancer, featuring:
- Participants who sign up to dance for 6 hours and raise money from family and friends,
- A FUN dance-party with non-stop entertainment - bands, music artists, DJ’s and dance groups.
- Celebrities & VIP’s on the Red Carpet, silent auction, raffle prizes and more.
It’s like the cancer walks, but instead of walking, you’ll be dancing for a cure and having a great time.

WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?
Proceeds from the Hollywood Dance Marathon go directly to pediatric and young adult cancer programs at Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA and the Four Diamonds Fund at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital. These programs include both support for childhood cancer patients and families as well as research to find a cure.
Lights Camera Cure – The Hollywood Dance Marathon was started in 2011 by a group of alumni from Penn State University living in Los Angeles. The group was inspired by THON, the Penn State Student Dance Marathon held at the school’s campus each February. THON is the largest student-run philanthropy in the world, raising over $100 million to help kids with cancer in its 40-year history, including $13.5 million last year. All proceeds from THON go to The Four Diamonds Fund at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital.
Keeping with THON’s spirit of FTK (For The Kids), the organizers of Lights Camera Cure created a mini-version of THON with a Hollywood spin. The event has been a big success, growing each year. Approximately 1,000 people attended the 4th Annual Hollywood Dance Marathon in March 2015, including supporters from throughout the Los Angeles area and beyond and dance marathon alumni from schools around the country. In its first four years, nearly $300,000 has been donated to help kids with cancer.
The event is sponsored by Lights Camera Cure (LCC), a Los Angeles-based 501(c)(3) charitable organization, and the Penn State Los Angeles Alumni Chapter (PSULA).
LCC is a California non-profit corporation whose mission is to raise money and awareness for pediatric and young adult cancer patient support and research through community based fundraising and service activities. In addition to the Hollywood Dance Marathon, LCC is expanding with other fundraising events and activities throughout the year in the Los Angeles area. The corporation was founded in May 2013 and is currently an all-volunteer organization.
