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

THON believes that all children should have the opportunity to grow up to chase their own dreams. THON provides financial support for families and children impacted my childhood cancer. You can find out more about THON by visiting 

For me, there could never be enough words to describe all that THON meant to me in my 4 years at Penn State. After spending time on the Donor & Alumni Relations Development Committee as a committee member and captain, and having served on the Executive Committee for THON 2018 as the Development Director, I realized I've been blessed to have had the opportunity to make even a small difference in an organization that has had such a large impact on my life. THON has taught me so much about myself and what I'm capable of, given me the best friends a girl could ask for, and shown me the true meaning of humility and passion. 

Since my incredible journey at Penn State has come to close and I'm now (cringe a bit) an alumna, THON is still such an important pillar in my life. You can support me and the efforts of THON 2021 by making a difference in the life of a child, today!
