Club Powerlifting is raising money again this year for THON 2023! Our club members are so excited to be a part of THON's mission in supporting families and children impacted by childhood cancer. This year we are paired with Bodybuilding and Fitness. During THON 2022, we were able to raise around $6,500 For The Kids and we hope to raise even more this year. Please consider making an impact by donating to our page and helping us reach our fundraising goal!




Make a difference in the life of a child

Help save the lives of children battling cancer by supporting THONTM. Our organization, Powerlifting, 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 $200 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.

Powerlifting is a Penn State organization that participates in THON™, in addition to our organization's primary purpose. Throughout the year, Organizations contribute to the efforts of thousands of Penn State students across all campuses by facilitating fundraisers, as well as providing emotional support to Four Diamonds Families.
