Make a difference in the life of a child

Help save the lives of children battling cancer by supporting THONTM. Our organization, American Institute of Chemical Engineers, 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.

American Institute of Chemical Engineers is a Penn State organization that participates in THON, in addition to our organization's 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.


            For the 9th year, AIChE THON is incredibly lucky to be paired with the Griffiths Family. Their daughter, Kasey, was diagnosed with leukemia when she was in 5th grade. While at Hershey Medical Center, Kasey underwent various experimental treatments, which were developed with funds from Four Diamonds and THON. Today, due to the generosity of countless donors, Kasey is in remission while studying Pre-Med at Penn State!
            As Penn State chemical engineering students, we are taught that we can make a difference in the world. Help us make a difference in children’s lives today. All donations are welcome, but even if you are unable to at this time, please share the link to this page with family, friends, and coworkers.
