Growing up is a beautiful thing. Let’s fight for it.
Please join us save the lives of children battling cancer by supporting THONTM. Our Organization, Alpha Phi, is taking action by uniting with 16,500 student volunteers to raise funds and awareness in the fight against childhood cancer. Alpha Phi works hard all year to spread the word about THON and donate as much as possible. We provide support to the children and families who need it the most. We are proud to be involved in this meaningful philanthropy and see the difference that our efforts make.
Along with our partner, Sigma Chi, we do numerous fundraisers around State College. We have online fundraisers, trunk shows, and pair with franchises to raise more money. We always look forward to seeing our families: the Smiths, McDonnells, the Zomoks, and the DiRoccos. Both of our organizations love spending time with Mason, Kyle, and Mara at barbecues and sporting events. Our children are our main source of inspiration and motivate us to achieve our goals.
This year we have three dancers who are thrilled to be representing our famililes and Alpha Phi for the full 46 hours on the floor! In past years, they have put in so much time and effort so that Alpha Phi is involved and dedicated to THON. All of our sisters are excited to be supporting our children, their families, and our dancers in the stands!
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. As we fundraise, we always keep our THON families in mind. Mason Smith, Kyle McDonnell, Mara Zomok, Alex DiRocco and their families mean the world to us. They inspire us to keep fundraising and keep spreading awareness.
In addition, the local research that is being done is making a global impact so that one day, we will find a cure. THON is special to each one of our sisters in a different way. We all THON for our own reasons but have the same end goal. We THON for more birthdays, for brighter smiles, and to celebrate the lives of the children and families we love! 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.
Please join Alpha Phi in our fight for a cure, FTK!
