Alexandra Brown and Taylor Viola

Join us on February 21, 2020


Growing up is a beautiful thing. Let’s fight for it.

We met at Penn State, but we didn't become close until we spent eight weeks together on a summer study abroad trip to China.  We were also on the same THON 2019 Rules and Regulations committee where we were able to serve as Pass Leaders THON weekend. In the effort to give more to Four Diamonds, we decided to dance together in THON 2020!


Alex has been fundraising and raising awareness for THON since high school where she volunteered to help plan the school's annual mini-THON. She has continued to fight to find a cure for childhood cancer every year since. She was lucky enough to sing the National Anthem at THON 2017!




Taylor began her THON experince in 2016 when she joined her first THON organization that made a strong connection with it's paired Four Diamonds family. The past two THON weekends, Taylor stood for all 46 hours while volunteering as a Rules and Regulations committee member.



Help Save the Lives of Children Battling Cancer!

Each February, THON's yearlong efforts and support for the families culminate in a 46-hour, no-sitting, no-sleeping dance marathon. We are taking action to offset the costs of treatment that insurance doesn't cover, provide therapy that improve a child's quality of life, and fund critical research in pursuit of finding a cure. We are committed to enhancing the lives of children and families impacted by childhood cancer. We believe that all children should have the opportunity to live out their dreams. We are committed to help pave the way to find a cure for childhood cancer. We want to be able to dance for 46 hours for the 46 children who are diagnosed with cancer every day. We're asking for your support! Please consider making a donation on our behalf and sharing our page to spread THON's mission. 

By supporting THON, you will be joining a community committed to conquering childhood cancer!



Alex and Taylor are fundraising all year with the hopes of being selected to dance in THON 2020. Independent Dancer Couples are dedicated individuals who set up their own fundraisers throughout the year, and with the support of friends and family, obtain tickets in a lottery system in the hopes of earning a spot as dancers in the Penn State Dance Marathon.
