Make a difference in the life of a child today.
DC Diamonds is a year-round fundraising effort dedicated to supporting children & families affected by childhood cancer. Our efforts culminate in an annual fundraiser hosted in the Washington, DC area each year.
Join us in our commitment to turn childhood dreams into reality by supporting THONTM. This year we are taking action by joining THON™ Nation and uniting with 16,500 student volunteers and over 25,000 alumni supporters in the fight against childhood cancer. THON's year-long efforts culminate in a 46-hour, no-sitting, no-sleeping dance marathon each February to celebrate our survivors, remember those we’ve lost, and take a stand--all in hopes of one day dancing in celebration of a cure.
Since 1977, THON has raised over $168 million for Four Diamonds at Penn State Children’s Hospital, providing comprehensive care for 4,000 families and funding critical research to take this fight beyond central Pennsylvania and spread hope around the world. THON's mission is to provide both financial and emotional support for our families, ensuring that they never have to face cancer alone.
While this year may not be what we envisioned, we are still committed to our cause For The Kids. Throughout the year our DC Diamonds Committee will still be meeting (virtually of course), fundraising, and planning our celebration so that one day we'll be celebrating a cure. Please consider supporting us in our continued fight as alumni to support Four Diamonds and the fight against childhood cancer.
