THON 2021 Committee Applications Now Open

Want to get involved with the largest student-run philanthropy in the world? THON 2021 committee member applications are now open. 

To apply, head over to THON’s website. After logging in using your Penn State ID, head over to the applications page on the left and browse through THON’s available positions. Students can join more than a dozen committees, including dancer relations, rules and regulations, entertainment, and more.

THON committee applications are due at 5 p.m. on Friday, September 18.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, THON will be held virtually next winter. However, it’ll still kick off as planned on February 19 and raise money for pediatric cancer research and treatment.

“At its core, THON brings people together and saves lives,” THON 2021 Executive Director Katie Solomon said in August. “While we may not be able to gather in-person in February, the spirit of our shaped mission remains true. Our student volunteers, Four Diamonds families and community can rest assured that, even if we cannot gather physically, the fight against childhood cancer won’t stop until there is a cure.”

We (virtually) dance in 157!
