Support Me
Growing up is a beautiful thing. Let’s fight for it.

Join us in our commitment to turn childhood dreams into reality by supporting THON. This year, I am taking action by uniting with 16,500 student volunteers and over 25,000 alumni supporters in the fight against childhood cancer. Our year-long efforts culminate in a 46-hour, no-sitting, no-sleeping dance marathon each February to celebrate our survivors, remember those we’ve lost, and take a stand--all in hopes of one day dancing in celebration of a cure.

Throughout the year, I will be fundraising to benefit THON in an effort to provide outstanding financial and emotional support and spread THON’s mission world-wide. It is my hope that one day, every child will have the opportunity to live out their dreams. 

Getting involved with THON has made an impact on my time at Penn State thus far. I was lucky enough to serve on the Rules and Regulations Committee for THON 2017. For THON 2018, I volunteered with my service sorority, Gamma Sigma Sigma. For THON 2019, I was honored to serve as a Special Events THON Chair for Gamma Sigma Sigma. 

This year I will be dancing in THON and I am so excited to be representing our amazing Four Diamond families, the Shovers, the Adamskis and the McClures, so that no family will face this battle alone. 

Since 1977, THON has raised over $157 million for Four Diamonds at Penn State Children’s Hospital, providing comprehensive care for 4,000 families and fund critical research to take our fight beyond central Pennsylvania and spread hope around the world. We work year-round to provide both financial and emotional support for our families, ensuring that they never have to face cancer alone. 

I truly appreciate any support you provide, either by making a donation or by sharing my page on social media to spread THON’s mission.

Helping save the lives of children fighting cancer by supporting THON™ for over 30 years. Gamma Sigma Sigma, along side Sigma Tau Gamma, have joined the fight with over 16,000 student volunteers to raise funds and awareness in the battle against pediatric cancer. THON's efforts are a year long fight that correlates into a 46-hour no sitting, no sleeping dance marathon in February. 

Meet our families: 

The Adamski Family (Bek) 

Bek has been paired with us for almost 9 years now and has been the heart and soul of our THON efforts! She keeps us striving for our best everyday and we are so thaknful for her partnership for so long! 

The McClure Family (Molly)

We have been partnered with Molly for 3 years now and she has been nothing but a ray of sunshine on our organization! This year we hope that the McClure family will have a chance to attend THON and experience it's magic. 


The Shover Family (Garrett)


The Shover Family has been paired with Sigma Tau Gamma for the last few years and has recently joined our THON efforts! Meeting the Shover family was very inspiring to all of our organization moving forward in THON. Their energy is amazing, all four of their children and parents are caring and loving.
