The College of Earth and Mineral Sciences Organization benefiting THON is a family of students, alumni, faculty, staff, and supporters. As an extension of the intrinsic passion and close-knit community of the college, members serve as outstanding leaders at Penn State by excelling academically while providing dedicated support to THON, the Four Diamonds Fund, and families whose lives have been touched by pediatric cancer. We provide our adopted families with emotional stability and build relationships that we will cherish far into the future. Our unwavering commitment keeps us motivated to fundraise relentlessly and honorably, while remembering what THON is truly about: helping the families.
We are One College, One Love, One Fight.
