The mission of Kazien is to conquer pediatric cancer by providing outstanding emotional & financial support to the children, families, researchers, and staff of the Four Diamonds Fund.
What We Do
We spend four weekends a year in various cities canning. Canning is where students from Penn State stand on street corners with signs and carrying coffee cans to collect donations from people as they drive by. We also host fundraisers throughout the year to add to our total amount of money raised. Another way we raise money is by sending letters to our friends, families, and corporations asking for donations to THON. Another way that we participated in THON is by attending the events that are hosted throughout the year such as the THON 5K and the Family Carnival. All of the hard work throughout the year is culminated into one big weekend where Penn State students fill the Bryce Jordan Center and selected dancers do not sit or sleep for 46 hours. The money raised goes to help provide financial support for families of children diagnosed with cancer as well as helping find a cure.
When cancer is cured, we will dance for joy. Until then, we will dance for life. If you would like to donate online to THON or are interested in more information be sure to check out www.thon.org.
