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. Together, we 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.

We have become incredibly passionate about this fight through our involvement with THON. This year, we are fundraising as an Independent Dancing Couple, in hopes of being randomly selected to dance during THON weekend this February and we need your help. In order to independently dance, we are entered into a lottery drawing and the number of tickets entered depends on how much money they raise (more money, more tickets!)  With your donations, that will bring us one step closer to being apart of something bigger and showing cancer can't do. 

James and Nick have been working tirelessly all year with the hopes of being selected to dance in THON 2019. They will receive 2 raffle tickets with their first $2,800 raised and more tickets are added with every additional $600. Please help them dance for this amazing cause with a charitable donation that benefits pediatric cancer.
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 James and Nick one step closer to being able to take a stand against childhood cancer during THON Weekend 2019.
