Growing up is a beautiful thing. Let’s fight for it.

Join us in our commitment to turn childhood dreams into reality by supporting THON. This year, I am 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.

In my past four years nothing has made more of an impact on my college career than THON.  Through my organization Apollo, of whom I have had the privilege of serving as their Member Relations chair for THON 2018, I am able to make a direct impact on the lives and families of children impacted by childhood cancer.  I am currently serving as the Alternative Fundraising chair for THON 2019 and am loving every minute of it.  

This year I was selected as a dancer for Apollo, and I am so grateful for this opportunity. 

Our motto in Apollo is Never Give Up, and I try and live by that motto every single day. 

 I'm never going to give up until one day we find 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 fund critical research to take our 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. 

I truly appreciate any support you provide, either by making a donation or by sharing my page on social media to spread THON’s mission.
