Phi Sigma Rho

Join us on February 21, 2020


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

Help save the lives of children battling cancer by supporting THONTM. Our Organization, Phi Sigma Rho, 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. 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.

Phi Sigma Rho is a Greek Organization that works tirelessly each year to benefit THON. With the generous support of our large alumni base and determined members, we provide both financial and emotional support to families impacted by childhood cancer each year. Since 1973, the Greek community at Penn State has united through the Penn State IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon.
Members of Phi Sigma Rho participate in multiple THON events each year. This ranges from 5k's and basketball games to family visits and Hershey Medical Center tours. Specifically this year we have hosted a variety of fundriasers to raise money for THON. So far we have hosted a pasta dinner, "pie" a Phi Rho, BBQ, restaurant fundriasers and a Gala all benefitting THON. Our sorority loves to come together and raise money and awareness for this amazing cause.


Phi Sigma Rho supports two families, the Beecher family and the Horan family. Throughout the years we have supported our families by attending birthday parties, Hershey Medical Center treatment days, sports games, tailgates, and oter fun activities! We take every chance we get to see our families and spend time with them.


Charlie Beecher 

Charlie has been cancer free for 9 years!

Mina Horan 

During the summer of 2017 mina was diagnosed with ALL (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia). After two years of treatment she was declared cancer free this summer! We even had a party just for Mina after she was declared cancer free. Mina is the most energetic and happy child we all know. She has shown our sorority what true strength and bravery looks like.
