Make a difference in the life of a child.

Help save the lives of children battling cancer by supporting THONTM. Our Campus, Penn State Mont Alto, 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.
By supporting THON, you will be joining a community committed to conquering childhood cancer.

Penn State Mont Alto is a Penn State Campus that participates in THON, in addition to our 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.
Cubs today, future Lions. Impact change, with Four Diamonds.


THON is the largest student-run philanthropy in the world committed to enhancing the lives of children and families impacted by childhood cancer. Throughout the year, Mont Alto will be fundraising to benefit THON in an effort to provide financial and emotional support and spread THON’s mission world-wide. Join Mont Alto and the Penn State THON community of 16,500 student volunteers and over 25,000 alumni in our commitment to turn childhood dreams into reality by supporting THON. Our year-long efforts culminate in a 46-hour, no-sitting, no-sleeping dance marathon each February to celebrate our survivors, remember those we’ve lost, and take a stand--all in hopes of one day dancing in celebration of a cure.

The year-round work that we do is to ensure that the Four Diamond families NEVER have to face cancer alone. THON offsets the cost of treatment that insurance cannot cover, expenses that improve the welfare of kids, and fund critical research in pursuit of finding a cure. Children should be able to grow up doing kid things and not worrying about pain, treatments, extended doctor visits, and much more. 

WE THON ... For The Kids     

WE THON ... so no family fights alone.  

WE THON ... so our angels' stories live on.
