Mission

Communications serves as the primary liaison to THON volunteers within the Penn State University community. We work to educate and empower students, faculty, and staff as to how they can make a greater impact in our fight to find a cure for pediatric cancer.

Committees and Information

Campus Outreach – Students Committee (35)

This Committee will spread information about THON, opportunities to get involved, and THON's events to Penn State students through various outlets. Closer to THON Weekend, this Committee will work hard to fill the Bryce Jordan Center!

Campus Outreach – Faculty Committee (35)

This Committee will work with their Captains to help spread awareness about pediatric cancer and THON to the faculty and staff at Penn State. Throughout the year, they hold several events including the Faculty/Staff Luncheon to get faculty and staff more involved. They also organize a Faculty/Staff appreciation event THON weekend.

Commonwealth Initiative (35)

This Committee will work to spread the word of THON to all of the Commonwealth campuses by providing them with the tools and information they need to fundraise! They also help organize the Commonwealth Dancer Retreat in February and All-U-Hour THON Weekend.

Special Projects (35)

Special Projects will work to create, plan, and implement special projects for THON throughout the year. This includes organizing and promoting the two THON Blood Drives, one in the fall and one in the spring.
