We all fight together.

Our committee, Liv, Laugh, mOPP, is taking action in the fight against childhood cancer. As one of 21 OPPerations committees, we are responsible for the set-up and tear-down of all THON events throughout the year, and we also work to ensure that all facilities remain safe and clean for all children, families, and volunteers at these events. During THON Weekend, we are the First In and the Last Out of the Bryce Jordan Center, and we are responsible for transforming the building from an empty arena, to the home of THON that we know and love.


We are fundraising 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 my hope that one day every child has the opportunity to live out their childhood dreams. 

When you decide to support THON™, you become a partner in the ongoing fight against childhood cancer. As part of our committee 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 Health Children’s Hospital to one day end the fight against childhood cancer.  Since THON’s beginning in 1973, we have raised over $190 million dollars, For The Kids®! 

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.
