THON OPPerations

Help SesEMME Sweep 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 the OPPerations committee, we work 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 will raise money on behalf of our OPPerations committee, SesEMME Sweep,  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.

As an OPPerations committee, we are responsible for maintaining a clean and healthy environment for THON families and volunteers at all pre-THON events and THON weekend. Each committee has 35 dedicated and hardworking committee members to help contribute to the success of THON weekend!

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.
