Make a difference in the life of a child.

Global Brigades Benefitting THON is an organization that fundraises money to donate to THON and their sole beneficiary Four Diamonds. All donations help to pay for the medical bills of the patients in the Children Hospital at Hershey and are vital in providing funds to help pay for cutting edge research for pediatric cancer. Our two THON families, the Hess and Sunderhaus families, are a huge motivation for us. Our THON children, Lydia and William, show us what it means to be brave and strong no matter what happens in life.

Help save the lives of children battling cancer by supporting THONTM. Our Organization, Global Brigades Benefitting THON​, 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.

Global Brigades Campus Council is a Penn State organization that participates in THON, in addition to our organization's primary purpose. 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.
