Make an impact in the life of a child today

When you decide to support THON™, you become a partner in the ongoing fight against childhood cancer. As part of my organization benefitting THON, I am working alongside 16,500 student volunteers and over 25,000 alumni to support more than 4,000 families at Penn State Children’s Hospital to one day end the fight against childhood cancer.  Since THON’s beginning in 1973, we have raised over $168 million dollars, For The Kids™! 


This year, we are taking action in the fight against childhood cancer. Throughout the year, we are fundraising on behalf of our committee benefitting THON to offset the costs of treatment that insurance cannot, cover expenses that improve the welfare of kids, and fund critical research in pursuit of finding a cure. We are committed to enhancing the lives of children and families impacted by childhood cancer as well as building lasting relationships with the Four Diamonds families, and it is our hope that one day every child has the opportunity to live out their childhood dreams.

Your contribution will fund innovative research that is will not only enhance treatment for children in Pennsylvania, but will also give hope to childhood cancer patients worldwide! Together, with every student, volunteer, alumnus, donor, and supporter, we can spread awareness of THON’s mission across the country and throughout the world. With your support of THON, together, we will make a difference in the lives of children nationwide. Join us in the fight, For The Kids.

The mission of the Entertainment Committee is to provide the highest level of production value in performances and audio/visual entertainment at every THON event throughout the year as well as at THON Weekend. The Entertainment Committee is made up of 85 passionate THON volunteers! We work throughout the year to create a fun and engaging atmosphere at all THON events, creating unforgettable experiences for all THON families, volunteers, and stakeholders.
