Looking for an individual or team participating in an event?
Make a difference in the life of a child.
Our passion for raising funds and awareness in the fight against childhood cancer began when we were exposed to Mini-THON in middle school. Over the years, our drive to fundraise and share THON's mission only increased. From 2015-2017, we served on our high school's Mini-THON leadership board, where we helped raise over $48,000! At Penn State, we continue our involvement in THON: Emma serves as a Special Events captain, and Anna is part of the Communications committee. Year after year, we have devoted ourselves to fundraising, and sharing THON's mission to conquer pediatric cancer.
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.
