THON 2019 dancers and chairs with our two families: The Pattersons and Mehalicks!
My name is Nick and I have been given the honor to represent the Men's and Women's Club Volleyball teams as a dancer for the full 46 hours in THON 2020. Ever since my freshman year, I have known that I wanted to be involved in THON. The Club Volleyball team has given me the opportunity to connect with our two amazing THON families, the Mehalicks and the Pattersons through various activities such as playing paintball, meeting for pizza and simply bonding through THONs 2018 & 2019! As last year's THON Chair, I was truly able to see the potential positive impact that this philanthropy can provide. This year, I am hoping to meet a personal goal of raising $1000 that will go towards paying medical bills and other various things.
I truly appreciate any support that you can provide, whether it is making a monetary donation to this page or sharing my page on social media to spread THON's mission! Please consider joining me in the fight to end Pediatric Cancer.
Growing up is a beautiful thing. Let’s fight for it.
Join me 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.
Today we dance in search of a cure but, one day, we will dance in celebration!
