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, Hershey Kisses, 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.
Hershey Kisses, also known as the Sweetest Org on earth, was established in 2010 and we are entering in to our 9th THON this coming February! Our organization has approximately 40 dedicated members who help fundraiser and spread awareness of pediatric cancer year round in hopes that one day we will find the cure to this horrible disease. We support our two families, the Ellen Smith family and the Jayden Corley family. Their stories and families are what drives our members passion to ensure no family ever has to hear "your child has cancer".
Every gift to THON provides hope. No matter the size of the gift, Hershey Kisses efforts are supporting children directly and providing for their families as they are taking on the battle of their life. Here are a few examples of what your gift can contribute to:
- $25 provides one hour of music therapy
- $60 one hour of Child Life Coverage
- $150 one day of outpatient treatment for Leukemia
- $750 one experiement at Penn State Children's Hospital in search of the cure
Our dream is for kids to be able to grow up and live out their own dreams. We are fulfilling our dream by taking action and fighting this fight by fundraising for THON. We are asking you to help fulfil our dreams.
Special Interest Organizations play a key role in helping THON fulfill its mission of conquering childhood cancer. Hershey Kisses is a Special Interest Organization at Penn State whose sole purpose is to support THON and our Four Diamonds Families. Throughout the year, Special Intereset Organizations contribute to the efforts of thousands of Penn State students by facilitating fundraisers and providing emotional support to our families.
