THON

The mission of the Penn State IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon (THON) is to conquer pediatric cancer through outstanding emotional and financial support to the children, families, researchers, and staff of the Four Diamonds located at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital. THON is the largest student-run philanthropy in the world reaching more 15,000 student volunteers across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

 

Penn State Abington has been blessed with two wonderful Four Diamonds families that we have "adopted": The Chapman Family and The Getz Family
