Make an impact in the life of a child today
When you decide to support THON™, you become a partner in the ongoing fight against childhood cancer. Our organization, Professional Golf Management, along with 16,500 student volunteers and more than 25,000 alumni, work tirelessly to support more than 3,700 families at Penn State Children’s Hospital. These efforts culminate in a 46 hour, no sitting, no sleeping dance marathon held every February. As the largest student run philanthropy in the world, our mission is to provide emotional and financial support, spread awareness and ensure funding for critical research- all in pursuit of a cure. Since 1977, THON has raised over $146 million dollars, For The Kids™! Last year alone, the THON community raised $10,045,478.44, generating the funds to support:
50,227 hours of nutritional therapy
66,970 days of outpatient therapy
13,394 research experiments
6,697 days to manage all patient needs
13,394 routine maintenance visits for therapy and treatment for a child
THON's hope is for every child to have the opportunity to live out their childhood dreams. Despite advancements in research and treatment, this may not become a reality for some. With your help, we will continue to fight for the day that no parent has to hear the words, “your child has cancer.” It takes each and every student, volunteer, alumnus, donor, and supporter to spread awareness of THON’s mission across the country and throughout the world. With your dedication and support of THON, together, we will make a difference in the life of a child. Join us in the fight, For The Kids.
In addition to our organization's original mission, we are committed to enhancing the lives of children and families impacted by childhood cancer by working to facilitate fundraisers, as well as build relationships with Four Diamonds families. Throughout the year Professional Golf Management contributes to the efforts of other student volunteers and works with the common goal of one day dancing in celebration of a cure.
