Make a difference in the life of a child today

Help save the lives of children battling cancer by supporting THON. Phi Delta Theta 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.

As a newly established fraternity on campus, Phi Delta Theta is proud to be participating in THON for the second year in a row. Last year, our members came together with unparalleled enthusiasm and dedication, making our inaugural year a resounding success. Through various fundraising events and initiatives, we managed to raise $5,430.30, contributing to the incredible efforts of THON and supporting the fight against childhood cancer.

Our Partnership with Rêve Dance Company We are excited to announce our partnership with the elite Rêve Dance Company on campus. This newly founded relationship not only enhances our fundraising capabilities but also adds a dynamic and energetic element to our efforts. The talented dancers from Rêve Dance Company will join us in various events, bringing their expertise and passion to help raise awareness and funds. This collaboration promises to amplify our reach and impact, uniting our communities in the fight against childhood cancer.

Our Commitment and Goals This year, we are even more determined to make a difference. Our fraternity has set ambitious goals to increase our fundraising efforts and spread awareness within the community. We have planned a series of events, including a Ghost Pepper Challenge, a bench press competition, and a buzz cut pledge all designed to engage and unite our members, friends, and families in this vital cause. Our commitment to THON goes beyond raising funds; it is about creating a legacy of support and compassion for those in need.

Why We Need Your Support Your support is crucial to helping us achieve our goals and make a lasting impact. By donating to our THON efforts, you are not only supporting Phi Delta Theta but also joining a larger movement dedicated to conquering childhood cancer. Every contribution, no matter the size, brings us one step closer to ensuring that no family has to face the financial burden of medical bills and that groundbreaking research can continue to thrive.

Join Us in the Fight We invite you to join us in our mission by donating to our THON page. Your generosity will help us provide hope and support to children and families battling cancer. Together, we can make a difference and move closer to a world where no child has to suffer from this devastating disease. Thank you for being a part of our journey and for supporting a cause that is so close to our hearts.
