Support Me
Growing up is a beautiful thing. Let’s fight for it.

Join me in my commitment to turn childhood dreams into reality by supporting THON! Last year was an absolutely incredible experience with my dancers and my committee. I got to witness first hand what everyone's time, effort and donations culminate into. There are truly no words to describe the magnitude of this event. It was like my first time going to Disney World, only ten times more magical. As a member of Theta, I am looking forward to being able to experience THON in a different capacity this year. I had the opportunity to attend the first international THON related event in Florence last year. I cannot wait to see what this year has in store for me, all of the volunteers, the families, and most importantly the kids. Let's all work together to bring us one step closer to ending childhood cancer. I THON for more smiles, more laughs and more memories. One day we will dance in celebration but until then we will dance for a cure.

 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.

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.
