Growing up is a beautiful thing. Let’s fight for it.
Band Together benefiting THON is an organization of musicians in the Penn State Athletic Bands working together to raise money to fight childhood cancer. Molly Barron, wife of Penn State President Eric Barron, has often said, “Band Together combines the two best things about Penn State – The Blue Band and THON.”
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.
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.
THON is truly one of the best things that I have ever had the privilege of being a part of, and it is very near and dear to my heart. THON empowers Penn State students, along with students across the nation, to make a difference in the life of a child and a family dealing with a cancer diagnosis. THON benefits the Four Diamonds fund, which makes sure that these incredible families never have to see a bill, so that they can focus on their child's well-being. THON has helped over 4,000 families, and has never had to turn away a family thanks to your donations.
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. Together, We Are Penn State!
