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.

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 The Kids 

I THON ... so every child's dreams can come true.  

I THON ... so our angels' stories live on. 


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. 

This is my third and final THON as a chair.  It has been such an honor to be a part of an amazing organization filled with incredible people.  Between our two families, the Bertrams and the Fourniers, as well as placing in the Greek Top 10 for the first time ever last year, I have formed memories for a lifetime.  Over the past 3 years, I have raised $3,855.19 and I am looking to raise $5,000 by the time I am done at PSU.  Every year, we continue our fight against pediatric cancer; although this is my last year at Penn State, this is a battle that goes beyond State College.  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.
