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

This year we will be continuing our fight against childhood cancer. Having seen the effects that cancer in any form can have on not only the afflicted person, but their families drives our will and passion to fight for more birthdays. In my previous two years at Penn State I have been a part of the Rules and Regulations Committee spending my Sophomore Year as a Security Leader.

This year, I will shift the motive of my efforts. Instead of operating R&R to help keep the Bryce Jordan Center safe, I will be aligning my focus to fundraising with the intent of hopefully dancing in THON 2020. The event has given so much to me, my organization, and our THON Family, I cannot wait to give back to it with all I have.

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.

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. 

One day all of our cubs will grow to be Nittany Lions.
