Join us in our commitment to turn childhood dreams into reality by supporting THON. This year, I'm 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 listen to the hushed voices of families torn up by childhood cancer and touncover their stories of perseverance and triumph.
Since my previous THON involvement as a Public Relations & Entertainment Committee Member, I've discovered the immense joy and hope that this movement provides. To know how many lives THON has impacted and how many moments THON has shaped inspires me to invest all of my energy towards supporting the next generation of dreamers and believers.
Since 1977, THON has raised over $168 million for Four Diamonds at Penn State Children’s Hospital, providing comprehensive care for 4,000 families and funding critical research to take our fight beyond central Pennsylvania.
Leaving my junior year, I knew I wanted to play a larger role in a community of like-minded individuals that constantly made THON what it was - a spark of hope that changes lives for the better.
For THON 2020, I am incredibly humbled to serve on the Technology Committee as 1 of 20 Technology Captains. I cannot wait to work alongside these awe-inspiring individuals to show our Four Diamond families that they are not in this fight alone – we're so much stronger than cancer and that together, love will prevail.
I THON so that hearing "your child has cancer" is neither a death sentence nor a debt sentence. So that one day, we can dance in celebration -- For The Kids™.
