Growing up is a beautiful thing. Let’s fight for it.
Freshman year I came to Penn State with no knowledge of THON; my life has changed from this experience. For three years now I have been lucky enough to be a part of wonderful organizations that raise funds for Four Diamonds and this year I am working with one of my best friends, Olivia Lawrence, to fundraise between the two of us so we can be chosen to participate in a 46-hour, no-sitting, no-sleeping dance marathon in 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.
To give some insight on how much THON means to me, I want to share some of my previous involvements. For three years I was a part of GAMMACACIA, a greek organization, and was able to hold the position of PR THON chair for two years. As a junior I was selected to be a part of a Dancer Relations Committee, and later was elected as the fundraising chair. We were able to raise around $5,000! I have been able to stand at THON every year and loved every second of it, and now I am asking for your help to raise funds so Olivia and I can be selected to dance!
It is my hope that one day, every child will have the opportunity to live out their dreams. We will be working year-round to provide both financial and emotional support for our families, ensuring that they never have to face cancer alone.
I THON ... For The Kids™.
I THON ... so every child's dreams can come true.
I THON ... so our angels' stories live on.
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.
