Four Diamonds


February 15 is Childhood Cancer Awareness Day.  To learn about Penn State's THON fundraiser activities, use this URL:

Since 1977, the Penn State Dance Marathon (THON) has raised more than $200 million for Four Diamonds at Penn State Health Children's Hospital, a leader in the fight to conquer childhood cancer.

More than 16,500 students will unite February 17-19, 2023, at Penn State's Bryce Jordan Center for a 46-hour, no-sitting, no-sleeping dance marathon. THON's incredible year-long efforts support Four Diamonds' mission to conquer childhood cancer by supporting world-class care and life-saving research.

Here are some opportunities to continue supporting THON and Four Diamonds.


Each September, families, caregivers, researchers and charities around the world unite in honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. A Presidential Proclamation recognizing National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month was first issued by President Barack Obama in September 2012.
