Looking for an individual or team participating in an event?
Growing up is a beautiful thing. Let’s fight for it.
Sarah is a senior studying Nuclear Engineering with a minor in Spanish. She spent her first three years of college fundraising for THON through her sorority, Phi Sigma Rho. Her sophomore year she was a part of a Rules and Regulations Committee, where she worked event security for THON weekend. She also donated over 12 inches of hair to Wigs for Kids in order to create a wig for a child with cancer. Then, her junior year she was a member of a Donor and Alumni Relations Committee, which enabled her to give tours to donors and send thank yous out to numerous generous donors. She is hoping to a join another committee and be as involved as possible with THON for her senior year. Her favorite THON memory was when a three year old girl approached her at THON weekend while she was on shift with her committee, and the girl asked to take Polaroid pictures of the girls on the committee. The girl gave the Polaroids to Sarah and was so excited to be able to play photographer, which reminded Sarah why she is so involved with THON. Sarah will continue to fight for THON so that every kid can be a kid.
Andrew is a senior studying History and Political Science with minors in Spanish and Business. He is a manager for the Penn State Basketball Team so he spends a lot of his time helping out the team. He has really enjoyed helping making THON Hoops a success every year and loves attending other fundraising events like Phillies FTK and Noodles FTK. He wants to dance independently in THON this year to get more involved with this amazing organization and promote a great cause. Andrew supports THON so that one day no parent has to hear the words, "Your child has cancer," and every child can enjoy their childhood.
