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.
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. 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.
My THON story began freshman year when I joined the Rules & Regulations Committee as a committee member. Our job as a committee was to ensure the safety of THON families and volunteers at THON events. Sophomore year, I wanted to become more involved with THON, so I applied to become a Technology Captain. This role would allow me to serve a larger role in THON as well as put forth my skills and interests into improving THON. Being a Technology Captain is one of the best decisions I have ever made, and I hope to continue making as much of a difference as possible.
This year, I am once again a Technology Captain! I am honored to be able to use my passions and skills to help continue this fight. I am extremely excited to continue my THON journey and am excited for THON 2020.
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.
