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. 

I am a member of the organization, Eclipse, which raises money specifically for THON. We are one the newest THON organizations on campus and last year we raised over $120,000. This year we hope to increase our total and continue the fight against childhood cancer.

This year Eclipse has received a Four Diamond Family, Jeremiah Reedy. He is a three year old boy in active treatment in Hershey who has joined our Eclipse Family this year! Your donations would be directly benefitting his treatment against his horrible disease and helping to make a difference in his life. 

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. 

Please consider donating to this amazing cause! 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.
