Hannah English and Amanda Mitchell

Join us on February 15, 2019


Growing up is a beautiful thing. Let’s fight for it.

Hannah and Amanda are so excited to contribute to the fight against childhood cancer. Through their years as Penn State University students, Amanda has participated as a volunteer on the Hospitality Committee for THON 2017 and THON 2018. She has also been a member of ServeState since freshman year, which is a service and philanthropy organization that helps raise money for THON, along with serving the State College community. Hannah has volunteered as a Public Relations Committee member for THON 2016 and as a Dancer Relations Committee member for THON 2017 and 2018. She is currently an active member of Boulevard, a service organization that also fundraises for THON each year. With Amanda being a Biology major and Hannah being a Biomedical Enginieering major, both hope to pursue a career serving people in the medical field. They are both looking forward to having a more direct impact through their fudnraising efforts to help the children of Four Diamonds at Penn State Children's Hospital.
Hannah and Amanda have been roommates for the past 3 years and have become very close friends. They are looking forward to supporting one another as an Independent Dancer Couple at THON 2019 for their last THON as students at Penn State!

Join us in our commitment to turn childhood dreams into reality by supporting THONTM. Together, Hannah English and Amanda Mitchell, are 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.


Hannah English and Amanda Mitchell have been working tirelessly all year with the hopes of being selected to dance in THON 2019. Independent Dancer Couples are dedicated individuals who set up their own fundraisers throughout the year, and with the support of friends and family, will obtain tickets in a lottery system in the hopes of earning a spot as dancers in the Penn State Dance Marathon. With your contribution, you will bring Hannah English and Amanda Mitchell one step closer to being able to take a stand against childhood cancer during THON Weekend 2019.


FTK Always,

Hannah and Amanda
