Make a difference in the life of a child

Help save the lives of children battling cancer by supporting THONTM. Our organization, Association of Pre-Professional Pediatric Specialists APPS, 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.
By supporting THON™, you will be joining a community committed to conquering childhood cancer.

Association of Pre-Professional Pediatric Specialists APPS is a Penn State organization that is centered around pediatrics and helping children. We work on professional development and education surrounding pediatric occupations. In addition to this, our members work hard every year to raise money to support THON™ and Four Diamonds Families. We work every year in hopes that one day we can dance in celebration of a cure!
