Growing up is a beautiful thing. Let’s fight for it.
Growing up in Central PA, I was exposed to THON at a young age. I never really understood what it stood for until I got older. Joining the Penn State family has allowed me to get plugged into THON organizations, and really get a glimpse of what it truly stands for. This year, as a sophomore, I was chosen to be a THON Chair for my club, Cru, a group that challenges individuals to captivate Christ's light and shine it among our campus.
I am SO EXCITED to be able to fight for a cure this year! 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.
Throughout the year, I will be fundraising to benefit THON in an effort to provide outstanding financial and emotional support and spread THON’s mission world-wide. It is my hope that one day, every child will have the opportunity to live out their dreams.
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.
