Growing up is a beautiful thing. Let’s fight for it.
Join us in our commitment to turn childhood dreams into reality by supporting THONTM. Our Organization, Zeta Tau Alpha, is taking action by uniting with 16,500 student volunteers and over 25,000 alumni supporters in the fight against childhood cancer. Our year-long efforts culminate in a 46-hour, no-sitting, no-sleeping dance marathon each February to celebrate our survivors, remember those we’ve lost, and take a stand--all in hopes of one day dancing in celebration of a cure.
Last year, our organization raised $239,000 contributing to THON’s total of over $10 million for children battling cancer, finishing as the top Greek money raisers for the twenty third year in a row! Now, we are asking you to join us in our efforts to support the fight.
THON’s mission is to conquer childhood cancer by providing outstanding emotional and financial support to the children, families, researchers, and staff of The Four Diamonds Fund. The Four Diamonds Fund provides financial aid to families whose children are undergoing cancer treatments at the Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital at Hershey Medical Center. In 1977, Penn State designated The Four Diamonds Fund as the sole beneficiary of THON; since then, not one family has been turned away when seeking assistance. THON has raised over $157 million for Four Diamonds at Penn State Children’s Hospital, providing comprehensive care for 4,000 families and funding critical research to take our fight beyond central Pennsylvania and spread hope around the world.

We work year-round to provide both financial and emotional support for our families, ensuring that they never have to face cancer alone.
