About the Plunge
Who hosts this plunge?
We Are… the Franklin County Chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association and the Mont Alto Alumni Society.
We Are… students in the group “Penn State Mont Alto Benefiting THON.”
What is THON?
Penn State’s THON, the largest student-run philanthropy in the world, raises money every year to contribute toward fighting childhood cancer. It was started in 1977, and “THON” is short for Panhellenic Dance Marathon. Students raise money to dance for 46 hours!

We’re proud to partner with local businesses and community members who feel passionate about fighting childhood cancer. We honor them with a page of their own.
All the Chilly Details
This year’s Polar Plunge is of a personal variety.
Fashioned after an ice bucket challenge, the 2020 Mont Alto Personal Polar Plunge is a bridge event to next year’s reboot of our lake dive.
When: 2020 December 4, 5, 6 — this year you’ll have three days to choose from for getting in on the action!
How: Click the button now and register. It only costs $10. If you can get other folks to chip in, that’s cool, too.
Set your personal page up (for your personal plunge, lol) and then share that info with your personal groups.
Do you know anyone who would pay to see you dump a bucket of ice water on yourself? We bet you do.
What: Every cent we don’t use to spread the word and host the event will go to the Four Diamonds Foundation to fight childhood cancer through the Penn State Mont Alto student THON group.
You’ll be helping fight childhood cancer. In case you hadn’t guessed, that’s the big WHY.
Being in THON has brought so much joy into my life because we are making a difference one step at a time.Keighley Taylor, 2018 THON Dancer
These little cubs deserve to grow up to be lions. We will one day dance in celebration of a cure and until then, I will be dancing to make this dream a reality.Mackenzie Brymesser, 2018 THON Dancer
