For The Kids

can grow up to be
a Nittany Lion

Why We THON

THON is a student-run philanthropy committed to enhancing the lives of children and families impacted by childhood cancer. Our mission is to provide emotional and financial support, spread awareness and ensure funding for critical research - all in pursuit of a cure.


As a community, we remain dedicated to the deeper meaning behind the monetary amount that we raise. The money we raise means that more than 4,500 families never see a medical bill, that parents can focus solely
on the health of their child, and that kids are able to create positive memories despite this disease.



We THON for the day that we will celebrate a cure.
