Looking for an individual or team participating in an event?
Growing up is a beautiful thing. Let’s fight for it.
Maura has been involved with THON since her freshman year, and has worked on the OPPerations committee, Dancer Relations Committee, and Hospitality Committee, as well as with her sorority Alpha Delta Pi. This year Maura is participating in a special events committee and hopes to dance independently with her independent dancer pair Robbie Rockwell. "I THON so that every child experiences the childhood they deserve. Every year that I have been involved with THON I have been constantly inspired by the families and their stories, and especially their strength as they conquer this disease until we dance in celebration. Taking a stand against cancer this THON would be for every child, sibling, family, and grandparent ever affected by cancer, and to spread hope around the world that we are dancing for a cure. Donations big or small will help the kids and spread hope around the world, thank you for all of your support to a cause so close to my heart!"
Robbie has also been involved in THON since his freshman year. His first THON experiences were as a Dancer Relations committee member his freshman and sophomore years. His junior year he was selected as an Alumni Engagement captain. This year he is a Special Events captain as well as raising money to hopefully dance as an Independent Dancer Couple with Maura O’Brien in THON 2019. “In the past couple of years I feel I have been able to see the true meaning of THON and its direct impact. At Hershey Medical Center I played with kids who wanted nothing more than to just be kids. You never forget the moment you help put a smile on a kid’s face. That is THON. Kids who have nothing but happiness and hope in them despite battling the ugliest thing I know in existence. They are the strongest people I know, fighting every day, fighting like kids, and winning. Their impact on me and my THON journey is indescribable. I cannot imagine what these kids and families are going through, and any donation will help kids be kids again, as well as get us one step closer to ending this terrible disease.”
