THON Nation

THON Nation encompasses a community of supporters - whether they are returning alumni or new friends, members of the Nation have joined the thousands of student volunteers at Penn State as partners in the fight against childhood cancer. THON Nation members play an integral role in spreading our mission to all corners of the country and around the world through fundraisers and unique events. Together, we will continue to make the difference in the life of a child.

Alumni Groups



Alumni Groups contribute to the efforts of THON, working towards our common goal of one day dancing in celebration of a cure.

Parents, siblings, and supporters can take action together by becoming part of the Nation as Friends of THON.

Individual Alumni



Penn State Alumni play a key role in helping THON fulfill its mission of conquering childhood cancer long after their time as students.
