Thank you for visiting our donor drive page!

Kiersten and Erik are both seniors studying engineering at Penn State. They each have very busy schedules and heavy workloads, but they are dedicated to helping raise money for THON in order to help kids fight cancer. THON is a beautiful fundraiser. Kiersten and Erik are proud to be involved in such an event. Please consider donating to this page so that you too can help make a change in the lives of these children and their families. Any small amount is appreciated. Thank you and please share with your friends and family. 

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

Help save the lives of children battling cancer by supporting THONTM. Kiersten Bradnam and Erik Lalezarian are taking action by uniting with 16,500 student volunteers to raise funds and awareness in the fight against childhood cancer. 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.


Kiersten and Erik have been working tirelessly all year with the hopes of being selected to dance in THON Weekend 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.
