                                    Why do I THON?

I THON so that one day, no family has to hear the words "Your child has cancer." Life is so precious and no kid should ever have it cut short by such a terrible disease. All money raised by THON goes right to the Four Diamonds at Penn State Children's Hospital to provide emotional and financial support, spread awareness and ensure funding for critical research - all in pursuit of a cure.

Communications 2020

This past Spring, I was chosen to be the Organizations Coordinator for THON 2020. I have the incredible opportunity to facilitate the communication between THON and all of the incredible organizations that fundraise throughout the year with the help of 13 COMM Liaisons. Along with this, I continue to spread THON's mission within the Penn State community and beyond. We as COMM hope to Encompass Every Dreamer together!


Communications 2019

Being a part of Communications 2019 was one of the most amazing experiences that I have had as a student at Penn State! It gave me a chance to make a difference in the lives of children and families impacted by childhood cancer with such an amazing committee. It is a year that I will always cherish!


Lion Ambassadors

This past Spring, I was very fortunate to have been chosen to be in Lion Ambassadors! We are known to be "Ordinary Students with Extraordinary Pride". Our hope is to communicate the University’s history, personality and traditions to students, alumni and friends through tours and programming.

Along with this, Lion Ambassadors also is very involved in THON as it is one of Penn State's proudest traditions. I am so thankful to be representing Lion Ambassadors as one of their four dancers in THON 2020! I will be standing for 46 hours! That is why I am fundraising this year to support Lion Ambassadors and I hope that you join me!
