Make a difference in the life of a child

Help save the lives of children battling cancer by supporting THONTM. Our organization, Science Lionpride SLP, 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.

Science Lionpride SLP is a Penn State organization that participates in THONTM, in addition to our organization's primary function as the ambassadors for the Eberly College of Science. Throughout the year, we organize and implement THON fundraisers, support our THON family, and plan an adventure for the THON Explorers event over THON Weekend. We are dedicated to THON's mission of each day coming closer to a cure!


The above picture is from our yearly bowling tradition with our THON family! We always try to visit them and have a fun time whenever we do! 


The below picture is from our THON Explorers event last year! We hosted a science experiment adventure where we made elephant toothpaste, oobleck, invisible ink, pen chromatography, slime, and homemade ice cream! We love doing this event with the THON kids each year.
