Make a difference in the life of a child
Help save the lives of children battling cancer by supporting THONTM. Our organization, Dance Team (Lionettes), 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 $180 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.
Our team would not be complete without our two THON families - the Fazekas and the Crimmels! Both Ashley and Shiloh were diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia at the age of 2. Ash joined the Lionettes family in 2006, and we have loved watching her grow-up and experience many incredible milestones. She is now 16 years old and living cancer free! Shiloh joined our family more recently, in 2018 at the age of 2. At the time she was in the middle of treatment, but now she is about to ring the bell at Hershey! The addition of their family has truly meant the world to our team. Ash and Shi continue to be our biggest inspirations in all that we do.
Dance Team (Lionettes) is a Penn State organization that participates in THON, in addition to our organization's primary purpose. Throughout the year, Organizations contribute to the efforts of thousands of Penn State students across all campuses by facilitating fundraisers, as well as providing emotional support to Four Diamonds Families.
