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

I THON for Morgan and Carmen, our two amazing SPSEA THON families. I am fundraising on behalf of Student Pennsylvania State Education Association to join 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.  

 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 ... for all my future students.

I THON ... for more adventures. 


We played laser tag with Carmen, our one THON child to take a break during THON weekend. 

We have still been able to connect with our THON families this year and plan virtual activities, but we can't wait until we can see them in person again!

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 THON being virtual this year, the families still need our help. 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. FTK!
