2018 Alumni Challenge

Each year, Penn State Alumni unite to demonstrate their continued passion in the fight against childhood cancer. This year, we challenge geographical locations to see which state can raise the most money toward THON. Gather with your friends, co-workers, local alumni chapter, etc. by organizing an event and raising funds to take action while spreading THON’s mission nationwide. Represent your area and put your community on the map by participating in the 2018 Alumni Challenge. Click here to Join the Fight today. #AlumniFTK

See where fellow Alumni are participating in the Alumni Challenge from across the country!


Inspire five friends and family to donate to THON by requesting THON’s 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 the organization of
your choosing.

Even though I have now graduated, I hope I can continue to help others see the magnificence of THON.

For The Glory

Tracey Meyer Pulos, '83

I successfully completed the event in 1983... and now, 31 years later, my son... Matt Pulos... is dancing as an independent dancer as well.

For The Kids

Robyn Passante, '95

It’s true what they say: THON never leaves your heart, and neither do the kids you dance for. FTK Forever!
