Make a difference in the life of a child

Help save the lives of children battling cancer by supporting THONTM. Our organization, Penn State Figure Skating, 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.

As figure skaters, the first lesson we are ever taught is how to stand up when we fall down. It is a lesson in resilience that we carry throughout our lives. Childhood cancer patients are the definition of resilient, and we are constantly inspired by their strength and courage. We are so grateful for the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of these children and their families. All donations go directly to providing emotional and financial support to families fighting childhood cancer, and we appreciate any support you are able to provide.
