Join us on February 21, 2020


Support Alyssa & Leah and make a difference in the life of a child.


We are getting closer and closer to reaching our fundraising goal to independently dance in THON 2020! THON is the largest student run philanthropy event in the country, which raises money for pediatric cancer. The both of us have been involved in THON since our freshmen year at Penn State. As our four years here quickly come to an end, we have one more goal, to be able to dance for 46 hours straight. This February we hope to dance in pursuit of finding a cure for pediatric cancer. Please consider making a donation to our page, every dollar helps! It would be an honor for us to be able to stand for 46 hours for those who can’t. For the Kids & For the Cure!

Help save the lives of children battling cancer by supporting THONTM. Our Organization, Leah Ferrari & Alyssa Perschino, is 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.


Leah Ferrari & Alyssa Perschino 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.
