THON 5K, Runners at Starting Line

Runners wait at the starting line of the THON 5K at the Bryce Jordan Center on Sunday, Oct. 13, 2019. The purpose of the THON 5K, presented by PNC Banking, is to support THON’s yearlong effort to raise funds and awareness for the fight against childhood cancer.

Penn State THON 2021 announced via Twitter on Friday that its annual 5k, sponsored by PNC Bank, will be held virtually on October 11, 2020.

The event, which raises money for the student-run philanthropy, allows participants to create a team, make a virtual fundraising page or run "in any place," according to THON's website.

More information about the event and registration can be found here.
