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.
