SUPPORT US IN OUR EFFORTS TO DANCE AS AN INDEPENDENT DANCER COUPLE AT THON 2022 ALL FTK!

THON IS THE LARGEST STUDENT-RUN PHILANTHROPY IN THE WORLD AND IS COMMITTED TO ENHANCING THE LIVES OF CHILDREN AND FAMILIES IMPACTED BY CHILDHOOD CANCER. OUR MISSION IS TO PROVIDE EMOTIONAL AND FINANCIAL SUPPORT, SPREAD AWARENESS, AND ENSURE FUNDING FOR CRITICAL RESEARCH- ALL IN PURSUIT OF A CURE. THIS CULMINATES TOGETHER INTO A 46-HOUR NO-SITTING, NO-SLEEPING DANCE MARATHON WHERE THOUSANDS OF STUDENTS GATHER TOGETHER IN THE BRYCE JORDAN CENTER TO CRY, LAUGH, DANCE, AND STAND IN SOLIDARITY FOR THE KIDS AND FOR THE CURE. THON DOES MORE THAN PROVIDE MONETARY SUPPORT FOR OUR FAMILIES, WE STRIVE TO BE A SHOULDER FOR THEM TO LEAN ON AND TO BE THERE FOR EVERY STEP OF THE WAY. THANKS TO THON, IT IS ENSURED THAT ALL FOUR DIAMONDS FAMILIES CAN FOCUS ON THE HEALTH AND HEALING OF THEIR CHILD, NOT THE IMMENSE AMOUNT OF BILLS PILED UP.

 ​WE FEEL SO GRATEFUL TO HAVE HAD THE PRIVILEGE TO BE A PART OF SOMETHING SO MUCH BIGGER THAN OURSELVES IN AN EFFORT TO MAKE A REAL DIFFERENCE. THE TRUTH IS, THON IS SOMETHING WE NEVER KNEW WE NEEDED UNTIL WE DID. 

WE HAVE ALWAYS HAD A LOVE AND PASSION FOR THON SINCE OUR FIRST EXPERIENCE IN 2019. FROM THE MOMENT WE STEPPED IN THE BJC FOR OUR FIRST THON, WE LOOKED AT EACH OTHER AND MADE A PROMISE THAT WE WOULD DO EVERYTHING IN OUR POWER TO DANCE OUR SENIOR YEAR IN THON 2022.

 FOR 46 HOURS, WE WANT TO STAND. WE WANT TO STAND UP FOR ALL THE KIDS THAT CAN’T . WE WANT TO STAND TO BE A VOICE, AN ADVOCATE, AND A LIGHT FOR THOSE WHO ARE STRUGGLING. WE WILL STAND FOR 46 HOURS BECAUSE NO MATTER HOW NUMB OUR FEET WILL BE, HOW TIRED WE ARE , AND HOW MUCH PAIN OUR BODY ACHES, IT WILL NEVER BE ANYTHING COMPARED TO WHAT THESE CHILDREN AND THEIR FAMILIES ENDURE. FOR 46 HOURS, WE WANT TO BE SOMEONE THEY CAN ESCAPE WITH TO THE MAGICAL WORLD THAT IS THE BJC FLOOR.

PLEASE SUPPORT US IN OUR FIGHT AGAINST CHILDHOOD CANCER BY DONATING TO THIS LINK OR SHARING IT WITH YOUR FRIENDS, FAMILY, ETC.! TOGETHER, WE WILL DANCE UNTIL WE ARE DANCING IN CELEBRATION! THANK YOU AND ALWAYS, FOR THE KIDS!


Hayley Sadler and Lizzie Penna have been working tirelessly all year with the hopes of being selected to dance in THON Weekend 2021. Independent Dancer Couples are dedicated individuals who set up their own fundraisers throughout the year, and with the support of friend and family, obtain tickets in a lottery system in the hopes of earning a spot as dancers in the Penn State Dance Marathon.
