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.

This year, Claire and I will be working our hardest to fundraising as an Independent Dancer Couple for THON 2020. We are choosing to partner together as our own organization to fundraise and hopefully be chosen to dance together for all 46 hours of THON 2020, for the kids! It is our 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 have been an active participant for Penn State THON over my last 4 years, and have been exposed to so many amazing, genuine, and dedicated people that are passionate about those affected by childhood cancer. This past year, I had the opportunity to be a member of the Hospitality Committee for THON, and that experienced fueled my love for this organization so much more. 

Being a THON volunteer is so special, and I am so appreciative that I have the opportunity to fundraise for such an amazing cause. 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.
