Make a difference in the life of a child.

Hi, we are Kelly Porter and Amber Bortner, and we are juniors at Penn State this year. We are taking action to raise funds and awareness in the fight against childhood cancer for Four Diamonds at Penn State Children's Hospital. One of THON's critical missions is to ensure that no family has to see a medical bill, and instead gets to focus on their child's wellbeing.
Each February, THON's yearlong efforts and support for the families culminate in a 46-hour, no-sitting, no-sleeping dance marathon. We are an Independent Dancer Couple, which means we set up our own fundraisers throughout the year in hopes of being chosen as 2 of the 700+ dancers during THON weekend.

For the safety of everyone involved in THON, this year's dance marathon will be virtual. Even though we cannot show our support for the families in person, our dedication to the cause and to the kids has not changed. We are still as passionate for THON 2021 as we were for our middle school's mini-THON back in 2012. We have been friends for almost 16 years now and couldn't be more excited to fundraise together and fight for a cause we both care so much about.

We appreciate any and all donations, or even just sharing our page! Together, we can all make a difference in the life of a child.
