Growing up is a beautiful thing. Let’s fight for it.
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. The video below highlights my first THON experience in February 2020, an unforgettable experience that showed me how dedicated Penn State students are to the fight against childhood cancer.
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.
I THON ... For The Kids™.
I THON ... so every child's dreams can come true.
I THON ... so our angels' stories live on.
Since 1977, THON has raised over $180 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. Despite all the new challenges THON will face this year, our passion and our mission will remain prevail. Instead of using what is going on around us as an excuse, each and every volunteer is ready to challenge our traditions and push forward along the path towards a cure. The next video provides a brief glimpse into what THON 2021 will look like and reaffirms how excited we all are to Rise and Unify!
This year, I am serving as an Alumni Campaigns captain for Donor and the Alumni Relations Alumni Engagement committee. Taking on more responsibility within THON has shown me how great of an impact the Dance Marathon can have on the lives of others as we join together in the hopes of one day dancing in celebration. 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.
