"One day we will dance in celebration...

Until then we will dance for a CURE."

Hallie and Carly met their junior year of college through their sorority.

In the effort to give more to Four Diamonds, we decided to dance together in THON 2020!



Hallie has been fundraising and raising awareness for THON since her freshman year of college with her sorority. During her sophomore and junior year of college she joined a THON Dancer Relations committee where she able to serve as the primary lisison to student volunteers selected to dance in THON weekend. 





Carly began her THON experince in 2016 with athletics. She continued her journey throughout the past 3 years by fundrasing with her sorority. 



Each February, THON's yearlong efforts and support for the families culminate in a 46-hourno-sittingno-sleeping dance marathon. We are taking action to offset the costs of treatment that insurance doesn't cover, provide therapy that improve a child's quality of life, and fund critical research in pursuit of finding a cure. We are committed to enhancing the lives of children and families impacted by childhood cancer. We believe that all children should have the opportunity to live out their dreams. We are committed to help pave the way to find a cure for childhood cancer. We want to be able to dance for 46 hours for the 46 children who are diagnosed with cancer every day.We're asking for your support!
