Hello everyone! I’m a freshman and this is my first year being involved with THON™. I am so excited to be a part of a THON committee and joining the fight against cancer. As part of my organization benefitting THON, I am working alongside 16,500 student volunteers and over 25,000 alumni to support more than 4,000 families at Penn State Children’s Hospital to one day end the fight against childhood cancer. Since THON’s beginning in 1973, we have raised over $168 million dollars, For The Kids™!
I have a lot of family and friends who have been affected by cancer and this is what prompted me to get involved with THON. I am committed to enhancing the lives of children and families impacted by childhood cancer as well as building lasting relationships with the Four Diamonds families, and it is my hope that one day every child has the opportunity to live out their childhood dreams.
I am so excited to be working with THON through the Merchandise Committee I am a part of and to help fundraise throughout the year. I was selected as a fundraising specialist and can’t wait to work to raise money to fight cancer. Four Diamonds helps to cover any costs of cancer that insurance can not cover, fund critical research, and provide financial and emotional support to Four Diamonds kids and their families.
Your contribution will fund innovative research that will not only enhance treatment for children in Pennsylvania but is also giving hope to childhood cancer patients worldwide! Together, with every student, volunteer, alumnus, donor, and supporter, we can spread awareness of THON’s mission across the country and throughout the world. With your support of THON, together, we will make a difference in the lives of children nationwide. Join us in the fight, For The Kids™.
