THON Thanks You Campaign

THON™ would like to show our appreciation for all of our incredible donors and supporters that have joined us in our fight against childhood cancer. Your commitment to this organization has allowed THON™ to support Four Diamonds families emotionally and financially, spread awareness, and ensure funding for critical research all in pursuit of a cure. While we are so grateful for your generosity each and every day, March 8-13 will be dedicated to showing you how much you mean to our organization and the families we support. Click through each day to learn more about the amazing impact our donor groups have.

Friends of THON™ encompasses a large supporter network of individuals, parents and families, Penn State Staff, BJC staff, Four Diamonds Staff who are all integral to our efforts all year and every year. This large family of supporters has been committed to THON’s mission since Day 1, which is why we thank them on day 1 of the THON™ Thanks You Campaign!

Our families remain the root of why THON™ exists and why we are relentless in our pursuit for a cure. Their strength inspires us to continue fighting until the day we dance in celebration. We also want to spread our gratitude to our sole beneficiary, Four Diamonds and Penn State Health Children’s Hospital Staff, who does an incredible job of making sure that our families receive top-of-the-line treatment through and beyond their cancer journey.

Wednesday, March 10 - Alumni

None of what we do would be possible without the support of our alumni and friends from around the world. THON™ alumni, parents, and other friends never fail to show their loyalty through their donations, THON™ Nation pages, and efforts to continue spreading awareness of what we do.
