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

Hello and Welcome to our fabulous DonorDrive Page! My name is Caroline Manley and my friend Katelyn Hottle and I are raising money in an effort to put an end to childhood cancer. Last year we had the honor of getting to know each other though our Dancer Relations Committee where we learned how to take care of our dancers during THON, a 46 hour no-sitting, no-sleeping dance marathon! I also had the opportunity to be on a Dancer Relations committee my freshman year as well! I have also gone on many canvassing and ribboning trips throughout the year to fundraise and raise awareness for THON with the Student Nursing Association of Penn State (SNAPS).

Katelyn and I were so inspired by all of the families and volunteers last year and throughout THON weekend that we are trying to raise enough money to dance together for 46 hours in THON 2020 all for the kids! With your support, we can reach our goal to help families and children in need of treatment. Every cent you donate will go directly to helping children with cancer whether it is for treatments, research or blood tests. We appreciate all of your support! 

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. 

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.
