About THON

THONTM is the nation's largest student run philanthropy! Committed to making sure that every child gets the chance to grow up and no family has to go through the heartbreak of losing a one, Penn State is taking action by uniting 16,500 of its 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.
