2019 Alumni Challenge

Each year, Penn State Alumni unite to demonstrate their continued passion in the fight against childhood cancer. The Alumni Challenge is a geographically based campaign that challenges our Penn State Alumni Community to see which state 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 nationwide by bringing THON to your area. Put your community on the map for THON 2019 by participating in the Alumni Challenge. Click here to join the fight today. #AlumniFTK

“By achieving each level will result in recognition on THON’s Donor and Alumni Recognition wall displayed in the BJC THON Weekend!”


Inspire five of your friends and family members to donate to THON by requesting pre-made mail solicitations. This simple and easy campaign gives you the tools to make a tangible impact on THON’s fundraising efforts and obtain donations that can be credited to an organization of your choosing.
