"We don't remember days, we remember moments." -Cesare Pavese
I am blessed with an amazing opportunity to represent Cru by dancing in THON 2019! The weekend of February 15th-17th, I will be standing alongside other Penn State students for 46 straight hours in hopes of bringing awareness and fighting for a cure for childhood cancer. To hear more about my story and THON's mission, keep reading!!
As some of you may know, I lost my older brother to leukemia when he was ten years old. Getting to experience the impact that he had on the world in ten short years has been the leading cause of my involvement with THON since attending Penn State University. My fight to help end childhood cancer is not only a fight for those still in battle, but also for my brother, Aaron.
When you decide to support THON™, you become a partner in the ongoing fight against childhood cancer. As part of my organization benefiting THON, I am working alongside 16,500 student volunteers and over 25,000 alumni to support more than 3,700 families at Penn State Children’s Hospital to one day end the fight against childhood cancer. Since THON’s beginning in 1973, we have raised over $146 million dollars, For The Kids™!
Once again, I am taking action in the fight against childhood cancer! Throughout the year, I am fundraising on behalf of my organization, a christian ministry called Cru, benefiting THON to offset the costs of treatment that insurance cannot cover, expenses that improve the welfare of kids, and fund critical research in pursuit of finding a cure. I am committed to enhancing the lives of children and families impacted by childhood cancer as well as building lasting relationships with the Four Diamonds families, and it is my hope that one day every child has the opportunity to live out their childhood dreams. Your donation will get me one step closer to that goal!
Your contribution will fund innovative research that will not only enhance treatment for children in Pennsylvania but is also giving hope to childhood cancer patients worldwide! Together, with every student, volunteer, alumnus, donor, and supporter, we can spread awareness of THON’s mission across the country and throughout the world. With your support of THON, together, we will make a difference in the lives of children nationwide. Join us in the fight, For The Kids.
