Make a difference in the life of a child.

Help save the lives of children battling cancer by supporting THONTM. Our Organization, Psi Chi, is taking action by uniting with 16,500 student volunteers to raise funds and awareness in the fight against childhood cancer. Psi Chi, founded in 1929, is the International Honor Society in Psychology. The society exist to encourage, stimulate, and maintain excellence in scholarship and to advance the science of psychology. Since 1977, THONTM has raised over $168 million for Four Diamonds at Penn State Children's Hospital. Throughout our partnership, we have ensured that over 4,000 families have not seen a single medical bill. In addition, the local research that is being done is making a global impact so that one day, we will find a cure. Each February, THON's yearlong efforts and support for the families culminate in a 46-hour, no-sitting, no-sleeping dance marathon.

By supporting THON, you will be joining a community committed to conquering childhood cancer.



Psi Chi is a Penn State organization that participates in THON, in addition to our organization's primary purpose. In addition, we are internationally recognized for our bright students scholarship in Psychology and it is our goal to preserve these values here at Penn State.
Throughout the year, organizations contribute to the efforts of thousands of Penn State students across all campuses by facilitating fundraisers, as well as providing emotional support to Four Diamonds Families.
