THON Public 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 Public 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 Public Relations Committee serves as the voice of THON to spread awareness for THON’s mission on a local, state, and national level. These efforts are aimed at raising awareness for childhood cancer and inspiring the public to join Penn State students in their pursuit of a cure, For The Kids®. Committee Members will play an integral role in spreading awareness about childhood cancer and THON’s mission by utilizing marketing techniques and campaigns to promote THON around State College and beyond, as well as ensuring the public remains informed about upcoming events and THON’s efforts.
By supporting THON, you will be joining a community committed to conquering childhood cancer.

THON Public 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.
