Alexandra Frole and Cecilia Mabilais-Estevez

Join us on February 15, 2019


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. Cecilia and Alex 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.

Cecilia and Alex have been involved in the efforts to fundraise for THON since they were freshmen and promised to dedicate their last year at Penn State to the Penn State Dance Marathon. 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, aim to obtain tickets in a lottery system in hopes of earning a spot as dancers in the Penn State Dance Marathon. With your generous contribution, you will bring us one step closer to being able to stand up against childhood cancer during THON Weekend and dance for a cure.
