Make a difference in the life of a child.
Hello! We're Meredith Tirdel and Michelle Kaplin and since our first year on campus, we have dreamed of being selected as an Independent Dancer Couple for THON Weekend 2020! This year we're taking action by uniting with 16,500 student volunteers to raise funds and awareness in the fight against childhood cancer by supporting THONTM. 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.
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.
