Make a difference in the life of a child.

Help save the lives of children battling cancer by supporting THONTM. Our organization, Ayuda, 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.

Ayuda is paired up with the Gora family -- parents Nicole and Stan, little sister Zayla, and our THON child, Ayden. All year long, we hangout with the Goras, whether it's at THON weekend, bowling, catching up via Zoom and more!


Check out our website, ayudaftk.org, or our Facebook and Instagram to learn more about Ayuda and all of our members! Even though things may look a little different this year for Ayuda and all of THON, cancer doesn't stop so neither do we. Join us in the fight against childhood cancer so that one day we dance in celebration!


Ayuda is a Special Interest Organization at Penn State whose sole purpose is to support THON and our Four Diamonds Families. Throughout the year, Special Interest Organizations contribute to the efforts of thousands of Penn State Students by facilitating fundraisers and providing emotional support to our families.
