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.
THON has quickly become one of my favorite things about Penn State. Each year we work so hard to raise money all year, and finally get to come together as a campus for a 46 hour dance marathon. I look forward to being on my feet and cheering along to eventually find a cure for pediatric cancer. Last year, Penn State was able to raise over $10 million, and I am so grateful to be a small part of that.
This year, I was lucky enough to be voted as one of the THON chairs for the PSU Women's Club Basketball Team. I will be fundraising all year long to make sure no parent ever has to hear that their child has cancer again. I've have seen what cancer can do to a person, and 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. THANK YOU, for helping me make a difference, every dollar counts. For the kids 💠🎗🌟
