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.
Since my Sophomore year at Penn State, I have had the amazing opportunity to serve as the THON Chair for my fraternity, Pi Kappa Phi. This organization has given me the opportunity to meet so many amazing people and support a cause bigger than myself.
My favorite THON moment is definitely from my Junior year when I was fortunate enough to spend the final four hours on the floor with our paired THON family, the Hammans, and our dancers. We had spent all year working hard to get to that moment, and I was able to stand back, and look at everything we accomplished that year For The Kids, all while hanging out with our family for our first THON Weekend together.
This year, I am excited to support THON as an Independent Dancer Couple, alongside my girlfriend, Sofia Allen. Together, we 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.
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.
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. Thank you for joining me in the fight, For The Kids™
