MAKE A DONATION
Growing up is a beautiful thing. Let’s fight for it.
Join our organization, Cru, to take action against childhood cancer by supporting THONTM. Cru is a community where the gospel captivates hearts, transforms lives, and launches men and women into an adventure with Jesus Christ. As an organization, we are passionate about THON because we care about serving others well. We love others because of the great love that God has shown us. We are proud to stand alongside 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. Your donation can provide music therapy to help patients express themselves, wigs for children who lost their hair during treatment, routine maintenance visits, spinal tap procedures, and private rooms for children and their families.
Throughout the year, we provide financial, emotional, and spiritual support for our families, ensuring that they never have to face cancer alone. We are so thankful to have the opportunity to support the CJ Ford family. CJ is 21 years old and is undergoing active treatment for high risk Leukemia. We stand by him and his family as he faces this fight. In past years, we were paired with the Aubrey Pace family. Aubrey has been cancer free since 2007! She is now in 7th grade and loves Frozen, Barbie’s, dancing, and butterflies. Keep both of these families in your thoughts and prayers.
Cru works alongside other Organizations with the common goal of one day dancing in celebration of a cure. One day, we will see the fulfillment of the mission to conquer childhood cancer. Join the fight, For the KidsTM.
