So every cub can grow up to be a Nittany Lion...

Throughout our time at Penn State, THON captured our hearts. From standing on the side of roads collecting change to visiting kids at the Penn State Children’s Hospital, the culmination of THON weekend is an important reminder of why we fight for the cure. It is all for the kids!

The financial and emotional burden on families impacted by pediatric cancer is staggering. The average cost of treatment for one child is over $500,000! THON helps these families with both treatment and emotional support –  Four Diamonds families never see a medical bill for their treatment!

The passion, energy and desire that fuels THON spreads like wildfire – and we want you to be involved too! Although our time as Penn State students is over, we are just as determined to continue helping these children beat cancer. With your help, we can make a direct impact for families, for research and for future Nittany Lions.  

Please join us in our commitment to turn childhood dreams into reality by supporting THON.  Our year-long efforts culminate in a 46-hour, no-sitting, no-sleeping dance marathon in 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.

Throughout the year, we will be fundraising to benefit THON in an effort to provide outstanding financial and emotional support and spread THON’s mission world-wide. It is our hope that one day, every child will have the opportunity to live out their dreams. 

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 fund 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. 

We truly appreciate any support you provide, either by making a donation or by sharing our page on social media to spread THON’s mission.

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