About THON

THON is a student-run philanthropy committed to enhancing the lives of children and families impacted by childhood cancer. Its mission is to provide emotional and financial support, spread awareness, and ensure funding for critical research - all in pursuit of a cure. THON's yearlong efforts culminate with a 46 hour no-sitting, no-sleeping dance marathon known as THON Weekend.

This event is held at Penn State's Bryce Jordan Center each year in the month of February. Last year, THON raised more than $10 million and was able to donate about 95% of funds raised directly to Four Diamonds.

Donate today

Since 1977, THON has raised more than $147 million benefiting Four Diamonds at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital. Four Diamonds picks up where insurance leaves off, enabling families to solely focus on care for their child. Assistance from Four Diamonds ensures counselors, social workers, music therapists and other specialists are available to provide comprehensive care in a family-focused atmosphere. Thanks to THON, Four Diamonds and the Penn State Hershey Medical Center recruits world-class talent to continue innovative research benefiting children worldwide.
