Looking for an individual or team participating in an event?
All donations are given to the Four Diamonds Fund, established to meet the needs of the children and families of the Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital.
We (Mike and Mark) met in our anatomy class on the very first day of school at University Park. As Kinesiology students we both connected right away with our passion for exercise and love for meeting new people. We both have a strong faith and a commitment to serve the community. Over the months, this became very evident in our friendship and it was not long before we wished to use our strengths for benefiting others in one collective effort. This is when we looked to THON as a means to achieve our aspirations.
After experiencing THON weekend together this past February, the two of us could not help but feel overwhelmed with excitement and joy from what the event had brought forth. As we watched the dancers stand for 46 hours straight in honor of children battling pediatric cancer, we thought of how humbling of an experience it would be to be on the same dance floor where these special children are honored every year. From this point on, the two of us vowed that we would put forth our best effort be one of these dancers and raise money for the brave children.
To anyone who is able and willing, any donations towards the cause are greatly appreciated in helping raise money for the fight against pediatric cancer. With every dollar raised, THON provides funding to help pay for children’s medical bills as well as supporting cancer research conducted at the Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital. As a token of gratitude for our fundraising efforts, the donations we receive directly increase our chances of being selected to participate in this year’s THON weekend 46-hour dance marathon.
Growing up is a beautiful thing. Let’s fight for it.
