Every year, thousands of Penn State students work tirelessly to support the kids and their families. Our creative volunteers fundraise throughout the year by planning alternative fundraisers, sending out THONvelopes, and cannister solicitation. Some students plan THON events by volunteering as Captains and Committee Members. Others dedicate themselves to motivating their organizations as THON Chairs. And each year, 708 students show their support for the kids by pledging not to sit or sleep for two days straight, as dancers.
More than 350 student organizations participate in THON. These organizations include fraternities, sororities, clubs, and even organizations formed for the sole purpose of participating in THON. For a complete listing of all of these organizations, please look below. If you’re interested in learning how your organization can become involved in fundraising for THON please email Kelly Tompeck, Overall Communications Chairperson, at email@example.com.
