THON 5K Registration


The first 50 Virtual 5K registrants will recieve a free T-Shirt!

The THON 5K is one of the largest 5K races in central Pennsylvania. Its purpose is to support THON’s yearlong effort to raise funds and awareness for the fight against childhood cancer. Your 5K registration fee will go directly to benefit Four Diamonds at the Penn State Children’s Hospital, which they will use to help cover 100 percent of the costs of patient care, as well as to fund critical, life-saving research.

Weaving through scenic University Park, PA, runners will be cheered on by the enthusiastic THON volunteers. Participants can choose between completing a Competitive Run, or a Fun Run/Walk. By participating in the 17th Annual THON 5K, you will be joining us, and thousands of others, in the fight against childhood cancer!
