Growing up is a beautiful thing. Let’s fight for it.
Hi friends and family! My name is Ashley Roeske and I am a part of Penn State Club Volleyball's THON Organization! Penn State's student run philanthropic event, THON has become a large part of my time and identity here at school.
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.
As some of you may know, pediatric cancer holds a special place in my heart. Going from a pediatric cancer patient myself to now joining other families in their fight against pediatric cancer is something I am truly passionate about. I am helping to fight so that no family ever feels alone and so that every lion cub has the potential to become a future Nittany Lion.
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.
