In just two short weeks, the year-long efforts of more than 16,500 student volunteers and 25,000 alumni will culminate in a forty-six-hour, no-sitting, no-sleeping dance marathon. For those forty-six hours, the Bryce Jordan Center will transform into a home of bright colors, endless energy, and unwavering support for families affected by childhood cancer.
From February 16-18, the Penn State community will once again join together to show what cancer cannot do. Since 1977, THON has raised more than $146 million for our sole beneficiary, Four Diamonds. THON’s contributions cover treatment costs for pediatric cancer patients at Penn State Children’s Hospital, ensuring that no family ever has to see a bill. Additionally, THON’s support funds innovative research, helping the worldwide cancer community in pursuit of a cure.
Join us in the fight against childhood cancer by making a gift today. With the help of our generous supporters, we will one day dance in celebration of a cure.
