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

Join us and help save the lives of children battling cancer by supporting THONTM. Our Organization, Tetra, is taking action by uniting with 16,500 student volunteers to raise funds and awareness in the fight against childhood cancer. Since 1977, THONTM has raised over $168 million for Four Diamonds at Penn State Children's Hospital. Our partnership with Four Diamonds along with your donations has ensured that over 4,000 families have not seen a single medical bill. We believe the journey toward a cancer-free life should never include the worry or weight of covering any medical bill. In addition, the funds raised through THON also supports local research with a global impact so that one day, we will find a cure for pediatric cancer and ensure a lifetime of laughter. Each February, THON's yearlong efforts culminate in a 46-hour, no-sitting, no-sleeping dance marathon to celebrate another step toward finding a cure for pediatric cancer.
By supporting THON, you will be joining a community committed to conquering childhood cancer.

Tetra: Who We Are

Tetra is a Special Interest Organization at Penn State whose sole purpose is to support THON and our Four Diamonds Families. Throughout the year, Special Interest Organizations contribute to the efforts of thousands of other Penn State students by facilitating fundraisers and providing emotional support to our families. Our Special Interest Organization, Tetra, was formed in 2013 by a group of Penn State students and went to our first THON in 2014! Tetra is fortunate to be paired with two Four Diamond families, the Stitzers and the Morales-Galeas'. Throughout the year, we host fundraisers and fun events to bond with our families. Join us in the fight for the kids and for our families! You'll be in the best company.
