2017 Alumni Challenge

Each year, Penn State Alumni are able to work together to show their continued passion to fight childhood cancer and see which graduating decade can raise the most money this fundraising season! Double your impact by bringing awareness to THON's mission, using #AlumniFTK in posts on social media after donating!


Inspire five friends and family to donate to THON by requesting THON’s pre-made mail solicitations. This simple and easy campaign gives you the tools to make a tangible impact on THON's fundraising efforts and obtain donations that can be credited to the organization of your choosing.

Even though I have now graduated, I hope I can continue to help others see the magnificence of THON.

I successfully completed the event in 1983... and now, 31 years later, my son... Matt Pulos... is dancing as an independent dancer as well.

It’s true what they say: THON never leaves your heart, and neither do the kids you dance for. FTK Forever!
