Empowering Women in Law

Join us on February 18, 2022


Be empowered to make a difference in the life of a child

Help save the lives of children battling cancer by supporting THONTM. Our organization, Empowering Women in Law, 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.
This is the first year that Empowering Women in Law is on Penn State's campus. We are immensely proud to say that we will be fundraising to make an impactful difference in a Four Diamonds family's life. During meetings, we work to empower and inspire women entering the legal field. We are incredibly grateful to now say we are also working to make a meaningful change in the lives of the children and families affected by this horrible disease.
