Make a difference in the life of a child.

Help save the lives of children battling cancer by supporting THONTM. Quinn and Maddie 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.

We are SO excited to be trying to independently dance in THON 2020!!! After being involved in THON for the past 3 years, we would love to be able to experience THON to its full extent by being awake and on our feet for 46 consecutive hours from February 21st- 23rd, 2020. It would mean the world to us to have the opportunity to dance and be able to inspire these children and families just like they inspire us.

In 2017, we met through a THON organization and have decided to join together as an Independent Dancer Couple for THON this year! It would be very special for us to continue our friendship that was founded through THON by being able to experience the bond of dancing together for our last THON. We will spend the next 6 months fundraising with hopes of being picked to dance during the special weekend in February.

For those who do not know, THON is the largest student run philanthropy in the world. Its mission is to provide emotional and financial support, spread awareness and ensure funding for critical research – all in pursuit of a cure. Money that you donate through this page will automatically be contributed to the THON 2020 total in our names and will also help our chances to get selected to dance!

Independent Dancer Couples (IDCs) are chosen through a lottery system.  We hope to secure as many tickets as possible to increase our chances of getting selected in this very competitive process.  No matter the outcome, all of the money still gets donated to an amazing cause. ANY amount counts and brings us one step closer our dream of dancing and helping find a cure for childhood cancer!!

If you chose to donate, we can’t thank you enough for your support of us and our mission. We hope that you join us in our commitment to turn childhood dreams into reality by making a contribution through us. Please feel free to share this link with anyone you think might want to help make a difference in the lives of these children!!

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


Madeline Davis and Quinn Callihan 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.
