Make a difference in the life of a child.

Join us, Anna & Emma, to help bring hope to the lives of children battling cancer!
This year, we are fundraising with the hopes of being selected to dance in THON Weekend 2020 as an Independent Dancer Couple (IDC). As an IDC, we devote ourselves to creating our own fundraisers throughout the year, and with the support of friends and family like you, obtain tickets in a lottery system in the hopes of earning a spot as dancers in the Penn State Dance Marathon. 

Our passion for raising funds and awareness in the fight against childhood cancer began when we were exposed to Mini-​THON in middle school. Over the years, our drive to fundraise and share THON's mission only increased. From 2015-2017, we served on our high school's Mini-THON leadership board, where we helped raise over $48,000! At Penn State, we continue our involvement in THON: Emma serves as a Special Events captain, and Anna is part of the Communications committee. Year after year, we have devoted ourselves to fundraising, and sharing THON's mission to conquer pediatric cancer. 

We began dancing together in elementary school and want to dance together one last time... For The Kids. 

For The Kids,
Anna & Emma 

Since 1977, THONTM has raised over $168 million for Four Diamonds at Penn State Children's Hospital. Throughout our partnership, we have ensured that over 4,000 families have not seen a single medical bill. In addition, the local research that is being done is making a global impact so that one day, we will find a cure. Each February, THON's yearlong efforts and support for the families culminate in a 46-hour, no-sitting, no-sleeping dance marathon.

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