I THON so every little cub can become a Nittany Lion.
I THON for more music, more singing, and the unsung voices. I THON for more giggles, smiles and inside jokes. I THON for Kirra and Lexi, so that their memory lives on forever. I THON so every little cub can become a Nittany Lion. I THON so every kiddo can find their best friends, just like I was able to💙
I THON for Kirra, Lexi, and every other warrior.
Every year, there are families across the world that are given the crushing news that their child has been diagnosed with cancer. Because of this, every year Penn State students work in combination with Four Diamonds to support these families financially and emotionally during this turbulent time. Together, every February, we host THON, a no sitting, no sleeping 46 hour dance marathon. This marathon is the largest student run philanthropic event in the world, all raising money to help and support the Four Diamond families. 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 work 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.

Singing Lions before their first main stage performance at THON 2020.
We dance for 46 hours straight to raise money to help with medical bills so families can focus on what matters, their kids. My organization, The Singing Lions, is partnered with two families: the Barnetts and the Broadwaters. Unfortunately, in the last few years, both Lexi and Kirra have gained their angel wings, but we still work to support our families and raise money in their honor, because these families have become part of our family too.

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.
