Alumni Mail Call
Alumni Mail Call is unaddressed mail written for dancers to open during THON Weekend. It serves as a source of encouragement and support for them. They are crucial for the well-being of our dancers and help them succeed at completing the 46 hours of the no sitting and no sleeping dance marathon.

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!
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 nationwide by bringing THON to your area. Put your community on the map for THON 2023 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!
There are four inspiring levels of gifts which provide you the ability to give smiles, give love, give dreams, or give life to those who need it most. Each level is associated with a distinct dollar value. Those who choose to donate will be recognized on THON's Donor and Alumni Recognition wall displayed in the Bryce Jordan Center on THON Weekend along with their corresponding donation level. Donate to the Alumni Challenge today and give smiles, love, dreams, and life to our families.
By achieving each level will result in recognition on THON’s Donor and Alumni Recognition wall displayed in the BJC THON Weekend!
