CB's Rookies is a student-run service organization at Penn State University. Our mission is to connect students with disabilities to our community at Penn State. Our members visit local schools once a month and work with special education classes by creating fun and engaging activities for the students that foster academic and personal growth. Following these visits, the students and their families are invited to join us on our campus for a sporting event once each season. By doing so, we hope to allow all participating members the opportunity to become a greater part of our community. As of last year, CB's Rookies became a THON affiliated organization and now we work yearlong to fundraise FTK!
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 name is Kristen DeStefon, I am a freshman at The Pennsylvania State University studying communications sciences and disorders. This will be my first year participating in THON. I am so excited to reach my goal, and to take part in such a great 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. Thank you for helping me and CB’s Rookies meet our goal FTK!
