When you decide to support THON™, you become a partner in the ongoing fight against childhood cancer. As part of my organization benefitting THON, I am working alongside 16,500 student volunteers and over 25,000 alumni to support more than 4,000 families at Penn State Children’s Hospital to one day end the fight against childhood cancer. Since THON’s beginning in 1973, we have raised over $180 million dollars, For The Kids™!
THON is a student-run philanthropy committed to enhancing the lives of children and families impacted by childhood cancer. THON is a 46-hour, no-sitting, no-sleeping dance marathon where we celebrate our survivors, remember those we’ve lost, and take a stand up to pediatric cancer.
During THON 2019 I supported THON through my special living community, EHouse (Engineering House). This was my first opportunity to be involved with THON and I loved every second of it. Attending THON as a spectator was such an amazing experience and I wanted to have a larger impact. During THON 2020, I was unfortunately unable to have a large involvement in THON due to a co-op, however, I was cheering on the entire Penn State community remotely.
This year, I got my chance to be involved in the fight against childhood cancer. Throughout the year, I am fundraising on behalf of Disney Club at PSU benefitting THON to offset the costs of treatment that insurance cannot cover, expenses that improve the welfare of kids, and fund critical research in pursuit of finding a cure. I am committed to enhancing the lives of children and families impacted by childhood cancer as well as building lasting relationships with the Four Diamonds families, and it is my hope that one day every child has the opportunity to live out their childhood dreams.
I THON ... For The Kids.
I THON ... so every child's dreams can come true.
I THON ... so our angels' stories live on.
Your contribution will fund innovative research that will not only enhance treatment for children in Pennsylvania but is also giving hope to childhood cancer patients worldwide! Together, with every student, volunteer, alumnus, donor, and supporter, we can spread awareness of THON’s mission across the country and throughout the world. With your support of THON, together, we will make a difference in the lives of children nationwide. Join us in the fight, For The Kids.
