Growing up is a beautiful thing. Let’s fight for it.
Why We THON (Jenny): Before coming to Penn State, I had very little expectations about my college experience. My only certainty was that I wanted to get involved in THON. Growing up not too far from Penn State, made me think that I understood THON. However, it wasnt until I arrived at Penn State and got involved, that I truly understood.
My freshman year, I joined the Alpha Omicron Pi sorority. AOII is very committed to supporting our THON families and raising money for future families. So, when I joined I knew I would want to get involved as well. AOII's committment and dedication to THON is one of the main reasons I joined the sorority in the first place, and it is one of the main reasons I am so passionate about THON today.
The following year, I joined the Rules and Regulations committee. Through that experience, I was able to see the ins and outs of THON that I wasn't able to see my freshman year. I not only learned more about the various committees and their interconnectedness, but I also was able to have a greater appreciation for how much work it takes to make THON possible. Finally, last year I went abroad. I tried to raise as much money as possible before I left. However despite all of my efforts and the money that I had raise, it was so devastating to not be able to experience THON in person.
Those three years have really showed me how motivated/passionate I am about raising money For The Kids. As my last year at Penn State, I would love nothing more than the opportunity to be able to dance for 46 hours during THON weekend. Thanks so much for your support!!! :)
Why We THON (Danielle):
THON has been the most humbling experience that I've been a part of. It is truly inspiring to watchalmost all of Penn State come together as one to support and help beat childhood cancer. Since freshman year, I have volunteered for countless of fundraising opportunities and luckily have had the chance to spend many weekends on canning trips. Stepping into the BJC each year has brought me such gratitude in making sure that we are changing children's lives one dollar at time.
One reason why I am so motivated to try and dance in THON this year is because of my brother, who danced for46 hours last year. Its hard to put into words how grateful I was to stand side by side with him and support him in his efforts. Last year, I was also on the Rules and Regulations committee. Through that experience, similar to Jenny, I was able to appreciate the ins and outs of THON and how much dedication goes towards the year long fundraising. Getting involved with THON has been such an amazing experience for I have made so many special connections with families and friends around me. My journey so far throughout THON has been filled with contagious laughs, love and inspirational moments.
