Make a difference in the life of a child today


Help save the lives of children battling cancer by supporting THON. Delta Zeta is taking action by uniting with 16,500 student volunteers to raise funds and awareness in the fight against childhood cancer. Since 1977, THON has raised over $204 million for Four Diamonds at Penn State Health Children's Hospital. Throughout our partnership, we have ensured that over 4,800 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.

 

  

Last year, the Delta Zeta x Sigma Pi THON organization ranked 2nd in Greek Orgs, raising a total of $274,145.84. This record breaking number reflects the continuous hard work and passion we share for THON. As we look forward to THON 2024, we hope to make more memories, expand the DZ x Sigma Pi THON family, and further enhance the lives of children and families impacted by childhood cancer. We thank you for supporting our organization and hope you follow along our journey!
