THON provides many yearlong programs for the Four Diamonds families. These programs allow Four Diamonds families to create personal connections with Penn State organizations, volunteers, and other Four Diamonds families. We highly recommend getting involved! Please read about each of our programs below and sign-up to participate at the provided links.
Each year, new Four Diamonds families join the THON family and they may be a little overwhelmed with all of the THON information and events occurring throughout the year and during THON weekend. The Family Relations committee can provide a lot of help, but many times what they really need is a veteran THON family who can help them sort through the information and help them understand THON a little more. That’s where you come in! We’re looking for families willing to lend the new THON families a hand. In these “adoptions” we’re asking veteran families to provide new families with helpful THON weekend pointers, meet a friendly face, and help them maneuver through their THON a little easier. If interested, please contact Blake Ament, Family Relations Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
