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.
At first, THON seemed like something very important to the many students I met during my orientations at Penn State, but I had no idea the scale, scope and overall impact that individual students like myself could make on so many people. I contributed to fundraising efforts throughout my entire freshman year, but it wasn't until February that I knew exactly how amazing THON is. I spent 38 hours inside the Bryce Jordan Center that weekend and my only regret is that I didn't stay for more. I saw firsthand the magic that THON brings to so many families going through the toughest struggles of their lives and experienced the culmination of a full year of fundraising. I THON to ensure the continued support of all Four Diamonds Families, both emotionally and financially for the years to come.
All donations of any size are very appreciated and if you have questions about anything at all please do not hesitate to reach out to me!
