Make a difference in the life of a child
Penn State Cheerleading is one of many organizations among 16,500 student volunteers that participate in the largest student run philanthropy in the world. We fundraise year round as well as perform at THON™ events such as the 5K, Family Carnival, and Pep Rally. Every year, the fundraising efforts culminate in a 46 hour, no sitting, no sleeping dance marathon held every February. As an organization, our fundraising total last year has granted us four dancers in THON 2021 that will represent the Penn State Cheerleading Team. We hope you consider donating to our organization so we can continue to fight against pediatric cancer.
When you decide to support THON™, you become a partner in the ongoing fight against childhood cancer. Our organization, Penn State Cheerleading, along with 16,500 student volunteers and more than 25,000 alumni, work tirelessly to support more than 3,700 families at Penn State Children’s Hospital. These efforts culminate in a 46 hour, no sitting, no sleeping dance marathon held every February. As the largest student-run philanthropy in the world, our mission is to provide emotional and financial support, spread awareness and ensure funding for critical research- all in pursuit of a cure. Since 1977, THON has raised over $146 million dollars, For The Kids®! Last year alone, the Penn State Cheerleading Team raised $43,185.27, making us number 10 for top fundraising organizations!
THON's hope is for every child to have the opportunity to live out their childhood dreams. Despite advancements in research and treatment, this may not become a reality for some. With your help, we will continue to fight for the day that no parent has to hear the words, “your child has cancer.” It takes each and every student, volunteer, alumnus, donor, and supporter to spread awareness of THON’s mission across the country and throughout the world. With your dedication and support of THON, together, we will make a difference in the life of a child. Join us in the fight, For The Kids.
