THON Legacy

We are forever grateful for the continuous support of our loyal alumni. Every year our THON family grows, introducing more students, parents and families to THON. Our THON Legacy stories highlight THON student volunteers whose friends and family members were also involved at THON during their time at Penn State. Check out the legacies that these individuals have left on the THON community below!

Alumni Challenge

The Alumni Challenge is a geographically based campaign that challenges our Penn State Alumni Community to see which region can raise the most money in support of THON. Gather with your friends, co-workers, local alumni chapter, etc. to organize an event and spread THON’s mission worldwide by bringing THON to your area. Put your community on the map for THON 2024 by participating in the Alumni Challenge.

The Alumni Challenge Map allows for everyone in the THON community to see how THON's mission has spread across the world! Each ribbon represents a different donation from an alumni of Penn State. The slider feature allows for a way to recognize how the THON community has grown since the beginning of the Alumni Challenge as we continue to fight to find a cure for childhood cancer!
