Growing up is a beautiful thing. Let’s fight for it.
Over the past 2 years, you have helped me raise $5191 all for the kids! I want to thank each and every one of you who have donated to THON in the past, and hope that you continue to donate or help spread our mission for THON 2022! Keep reading below to learn more about what THON is and my personal experience with it.
This year, I am again volunteering with OPP, and taking action by fundraising with my sorority, Alpha Delta Pi (and our THON partner Phi Kappa Theta), and 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.
Last year THON raised over $11 million all for the kids! We dance so that no family ever hears the words “your child has cancer”. We dance for the survivors, the fighters, and the angels. Most of all, we dance for the Charlie Karchner and Gavin Grimm families! Please follow the link to donate if you feel inclined.
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.
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.
