Growing up is a beautiful thing. Let’s fight for it.
Join us in our commitment to turn childhood dreams into reality by supporting THONTM. Our Organization, PLL Dance Company, is 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.
Since 1977, THON has raised over $157 million for Four Diamonds at Penn State Children’s Hospital, providing comprehensive care for 4,000 families and funding critical research to take this 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.
PLL Dance Company
PLL Dance Co was created in 2011 by a group of girls who wanted to pursue their love for dance in college. In 2013, PLL became a registered THON organization committed to fundraising for a cure and supporting all families affected by childhood cancer. Since 2012, PLL Dance Co has been given the honor of performing on stage at THON weekend each year, where we express our passion for THON through our love of dance.
Our company has two incredible THON children, Olivia and Jolie, whom we adore! Throughout the year, PLL puts in effort to make a positive impact on their lives and support them. We have created lasting memories through visiting them, sending gifts for birthdays, pen pals, character stories, scrapbooks and more.
PLL, being a small organization ranging between 30-40 members, has worked endlessly each year to make as much of a fundraising impact as possible. In 2016-2017 we raised close to $30,000 FTK and we proudly continue to strive for our goals every year! Fundraising efforts are year long and PLL participates in canvassing, donation boxes, THONvelopes, restaurant pairings, bake sales, various alternative events and item sales, and importantly through our peer-to-peer online page!
Our love for THON is an aspect of PLL Dance Co that makes our organization special. We are a group made of close friendships, dedication, and passion. We will continue to fight for the lives of children with cancer, so that one day they may grow up to find a group like ours - where they can express themselves and do what they love.
Organizations play a key role in helping THON fulfill its mission of conquering childhood cancer. Throughout the year, Organizations contribute to the efforts of thousands of Penn State students across all campuses by facilitating fundraisers and providing emotional support to Four Diamonds Families. PLL Dance Company works alongside these Organizations with the common goal of one day dancing in celebration of a cure.
