Make a difference in the life of a child.


Help save the lives of children battling cancer by supporting THONTM. Our organization, Eclipse, 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 $180 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.
 

Eclipse is a Special Interest Organization that was founded in 2016 by a group of friends in a freshman dorm at Penn State. Our primary purpose is to raise money for THON while also fostering a loving and inclusive environment where students are able to be themselves and make lifelong friends. With over 500 students, we are one of the fastest growing organizations on campus and last year we raised $150,000 towards THON and fighting pediatric cancer. We are blessed to have been paired with the Jeremiah Reedy Family. Jeremiah is 4 years old and has been diagnosed with Sarcoma. He is currently undergoing treatment at the Hershey Medical Center and we are beyond excited to do everything in our power to help Jeremiah and the Reedy Family through this difficult time.

 

Any donation is greatly appreciated. Every last cent helps make a difference in the lives of those affected by pediatric cancer. By supporting THON, you will be joining a community committed to conquering childhood cancer. We thank you in advance for your generosity.
