Growing up is a beautiful thing. Let’s fight for it.
Hi everyone! My name is CJ Maron and I am currently a THON Chair for my business fraternity, Phi Beta Lambda. THON is Penn State's 46-hour no-sitting, no-sleeping dance marathon where students band together to celebrate our survivors and remember those we've lost, all while taking a stand against pediatric cancer. We work all year round providing both financial and emotional support to our families in order to create a world in which every child will have the opportunity to live out their dreams to the fullest! THON is something that I am very passionate about and is one of the main reasons I came to Penn State! Ever since I learned about it from my sister Paige, who danced in THON for the full 46 hours, I fell in love with the event. My hope is to spread THON's mission and to get to share such a wonderful experience with everyone I can.
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 very sincerely appreciate any support you provide, either by making a donation or by sharing my page on social media to spread THON’s mission. I also am more than glad to talk about THON at any point so if you want to reach out to me, by all means do so!
