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

Join Zach and me 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.

As the a member of the Penn State Cheerleading team, serving as the MicMan, I have been blessed to have the opportunity to interact with many THON Families.  Cancer has taken the lives of numerous members of my family, and I am dancing to help my children have a different experience. I am extremely proud to be dancing with my best friend, Zach Sowa, the "Cheerleading Manager" and look forward to our pursuits together. We have attended THON for the past 3 years, and the past two years we have spent many hours on the floor supporting dancers.  This year We Are taking the floor in a different way. 

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.
