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, Megan and I will be 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. 

Every since Megan and I started our education at Penn State, we have have volunteered and helped to work towards THON's mission through SNAPS (Student Nurses' Association of Penn State).  Each year we actively fundraise by canning, canvassing, participating in blood drives, and attending restaurant fundraisers around State College . I also participate in fundraising efforts with the Penn State Fitwell Fitness Instructors. With Penn State Fitwell, we hold fitness classes for organizations to raise money for THON. Megan and I both have participated on committees in efforts to help make THON weekend a success.

THON has always been an important part of our college experience and we would like to continue that this year. Megan and I wish to dance in THON in support of all of the children and their families affected by pediatric cancer. This year the two of us as an independent dancer couple will be fundraising in order to raise enough money to be put in the lottery with a chance to  dance in the the 46 hour, no sitting, no sleeping dance marathon. Megan and I truly appreciate any support you provide us and the cause, either by making a donation or by sharing our page on social media to spread THON’s mission. 

Thank you so much for any support you graciously give us, the rest of the Penn State community and Four Diamonds Foundation. We are so very excited to raise money for all of our little lions. FTK always.
