Team Captain Together Apart 2021 Virtual THON 5K powered by PNC

Please Join by 5K THON Team or Donate

Many years ago, I was given the amazing opportunity to participate in a 48-hour, no-sitting, no-sleeping dance marathon at Penn State ... otherwise known as THON (proof above). I will always be incredibly grateful for this experience ... the road-trips for fundraising, the volunteering, the bonding, the line dance, the ice baths, the middle-of-the-night visits, the mailman delivery, the child we got to know and raise money for.

Since 1977, THON has raised over $168 million for Four Diamonds at Penn State Children's Hospital, providing comprehensive care for 4,000 families and funding critical research. 

This year, I am participating in the THONā„¢ 5K on October 11 ... which has gone virtual (2020-style).  

HERE IS WHERE YOU COME IN. I have created a team that you can either join (which means you must run a 5K on October 11th and commit to raising $250) or make a donation towards my $250 goal. If you choose to join my team, it's called TOGETHER APART, named after my favorite podcast, also my overall sentiment right now. We are all together apart right now and by joining me or donating to this important cause, together we can spread hope around the world even though we are apart. XO
