The Penn State Equestrian Team has proudly been a part of THON for over 10 years! During these 10 years our team has experienced the beautiful impact that THON has on all of its Four Diamonds families. We have been paired with our THON family, The Smiths, for three years now. Through our pairing with The Smiths, our team has been granted the opportunity to observe, first-hand, the positive impacts that THON and The Four Diamonds Foundation have on families affected by Childhood Cancer. At the beginning of our pairing with The Smiths, our THON child, Alex, had been diagnosed with Leukemia at the age of 14. About 2 years later we were all able to gather and celebrate as Alex rang the ceremonial bell at Hershey Medical Center, signifying the end of her treatment. In this moment we were able to see just how important THON's mission is; Alex proved to us that through collective effort, hard-work, and dedication a success story is possible.
The Penn State Equestrian Team dedicates its time to raising money and awareness so that one day every child diagnosed with Pediatric Cancer will get to celebrate their victory just as Alex did!
