Make a difference in the life of a child.

Hello Everyone!
Thank you for your interest in supporting this cause Danielle and I care so much about!  Penn State THON has given us the opportunity to see how incredible of an impact Four Diamonds has on the lives of the children and families of those affected by pediatric cancer.  The THON families we have met are some of the strongest and supportive people, so we are doing everything we can to make sure they live the most wonderful lives possible.  Although we typically fundraise on the behalf of an organization that supports THON, we decided to fundraise by ourselves in hopes of being able to support these victims of childhood cancer as dancers in THON 2020!  THON weekend is truly the most incredible time of the year and we encourage everyone to look up past weekends if you are not familiar!  We spend a lot of time supporting this incredible cause and we thank you for wanting to get involved as well!  Feel free to reach out to us for anymore information regarding THON or Four Diamonds!
Help save the lives of children battling cancer by supporting THONTM. Danielle and I 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.


Danielle and Lauren 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.
