Growing up is a beautiful thing. Let’s fight for it.
Join Club Field Hockey 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 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.
Last year was my first year that I was able to attend THON. In just 46 hours, I had never experienced so many emotions at once, but it was truly one of the most special and illuminating experiences of my life. I THON so that no parent ever has to hear the words "your child has cancer". I hope that one day we will dance in celebration, but for now, we will continue to dance in pursuit 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.
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.
My experiences with THON have been the best part of my time at Penn State. Last year, I was able to participate in a Ribbon Sale Fundraiser with the Club Field Hockey team. It was such an amazing experience because we were able to bond as a team, spread THON's mission to another part of the Pennsylvania, and raise money For The Kids®!
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. :)
