THON Donor & Alumni Relations

Join us on February 18, 2022


Make a difference in the life of a child.


Help save the lives of children battling cancer by supporting THONTM. Our committee, THON Donor & Alumni Relations, 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 $190 million for Four Diamonds at Penn State Health 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.

The mission of the Donor & Alumni Relations Committee is to create and foster relationships with THON’s growing donor base and educate the THON community about awareness campaigns and effective fundraising. Our goal is to further THON's mission by empowering donors, alumni and student volunteers to take action in the fight against childhood cancer.
By supporting THON, you will be joining a community committed to conquering childhood cancer.

THON Donor & Alumni Relations is a Penn State THON Committee that works tirelessly all year to plan and facilitate THON 2022. Throughout the year, committees contribute to the efforts of thousands of Penn State students by learning about the different aspects of THON, as well as facilitating events, fundraisers, and other aspects of THON.
