Looking for an individual or team participating in an event?
When you decide to support THON™, you become a partner in the ongoing fight against childhood 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™!
This year, I am taking action in the fight against childhood cancer. Throughout the year, I am fundraising on behalf of the Entertainment Committee Captains to offset the costs of treatment that insurance cannot cover, expenses that improve the welfare of kids, and fund critical research in pursuit of finding a cure. 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.
THE THON 2020 ENTERTAINMENT COMMITTEE CAPTAINS.
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.
This year my participation in THON is very special to me. I serve as one of the six DJs for THON 2020. With this position, we are in charge of making playlists and playing music for all pre-THON events and at THON itself, to keep all participating entertained! My position specifically is called the Crowd Engagement DJ. My Co-captain, Doug Seip, and I also work with the Crowd Entertainment Committee to ensure that all of the crowd entertainment games are planned out correctly so everyone at THON can enjoy some fun games!
I grew up hearing my Pop-Pop constantly repeat the saying happiness and health is what life is all about. Even though there are only a couple of words being said, they had the power to be the foundation of my life since I was a little girl. When appreciating my happiness and health, I always find myself positively being in touch with reality and appreciating life’s difficulties and challenges as they come, instead of drowning. These words also guided me into wanting to be involved with THON. I found a philanthropy whose main goal is to give people happiness and health. Through multiple events and strong support, THON provides endless amounts of happiness for the families. As well, THON donates a great deal of money towards research, giving children a chance to be healthy once again. These are the reasons as to why I am passionate and want to be involved with THON.
Be apart of the magic of THON. Join us in the fight, For The Kids.
"One day we will dance for a celebration, until then we will dance for a cure."
My best to you always~
