Make a difference in the life of a child today

We are fortunate to have a dancer for THON Weekend 2024 and are excited to share THON's mission with family, friends, and alumni. As we make an impact on campus and against childhood cancer, please consider donating to support our efforts! As a fraternity we our determined to care for our paired family as well, the Keira Adkin Family. They help to remind us all why we fight so hard and encourage us to work harder to one day conqueror childhood cancer. As we take on the 46 hour long weekend, help us, help the kids!

Our fraternity has deep roots within THON, as the founder Bill Lear is a Theta Chi brother from our Penn State Omega Chapter. We are dedicated to continue his strong fight against childhood cancer which continues to change lives since its inception. In our fraternity, apart from our invested members, we are fortunate enough to boast Committee Members, Captains, and Directors. We all work hard to fundraise so that one day our our family and so many others can dance for a cure. 

Help save the lives of children battling cancer by supporting THON. Theta Chi 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-sleepingdance marathon. By supporting THON, you will be joining a community committed to conquering childhood cancer.
