​Growing up is a beautiful thing. Let’s fight for it.


Welcome to Apollo's Donor Drive Page! 

             Apollo was founded in 2011 by a small group of students with a vision for a new special interest organization. As of THON 2018, Apollo has become a top fundraising organization, supports three amazing families, and has raised a cumulative total of over $700,000 to fight pediatric cancer. Inspired by our families' never ending perseverance, our motto became Never Give Up (NGU).      

 

                                                                               

 Apollo has three main missions: 

Support our families

             

Devanhi, Noah and Rob

When Noah Mummert isn't watching a Superhero movie, playing with his cats, or attending Monster Truck events, you can find him wrestling it out with some Apollo members! Noah is 11 years old and celebrated being 7 years cancer free in April 2018 after beating his Wilms Tumor. 

​The Apollo Family also includes the Devanhi Sanchez Family. In May 2013 at the age of 2, Devhani was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia, but as of November 2018, she will reach her 5-year cancer-free mile marker! Dev is currently a 2nd grader from Hanover, PA that loves Disney princesses, cheerleading, and her recently acquired role of big sister to her baby brother Mathias.

Rob DelFranco and his family are Apollo's newest additions! The DelFranco Family are huge Penn State fans, so Apollo has been able to hang out with them when they are in Happy Valley for sporting events. Rob DelFranco is a Penn State graduate like his parents, Cathleen and Guy, and was very involved with THON and his fraternity during his time here.

Support THON   

Join us in our commitment to turn childhood dreams into reality by supporting THONTM. Our Organization, Apollo, 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.

Since 1977, 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 this fight beyond central Pennsylvania and spread hope around the world.
