We sing because it holds us together.
Hi friends and family! If you're reading this it means that you are interested in learning a bit more about THON which is AMAZING!!! I'd love to share the story of why I THON with you.
When I joined The Singing Lions at the beginning of my first year at Penn State, I had no idea how much this group and the members' commitment to THON would transform me. About a year and a half later, I was a dancer for THON 2020.
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.
Throughout the year, I 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.
I THON ... For Lexi,
I THON ... For Kirra,
I THON ... So that every child can sing and dance!
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. WE SING FTK!
