In just one week, we will celebrate 100 Days ‘Til THON. From February 15-17, 708 dancers will stand together as they begin their 46-hour no-sitting, no-sleeping journey in the fight against childhood cancer. Last year, THON raised $10,151,663.93 for Four Diamonds at Penn State Children’s Hospital, bringing THON’s total contribution to Four Diamonds to over $157 million since 1977. However, there is still work to be done.
To celebrate the countdown to 100 days ‘Til THON, THON is launching the second annual One Day We Will Dance In Celebration campaign. This campaign encompasses THON’s hope to one day dance in celebration of a cure for childhood cancer and our commitment to continue dancing until that day. We have set a fundraising goal of $300,000 over the week of October 31 to November 7, 2018 in an effort to raise awareness of THON’s mission and to ensure funding for innovative family care and critical research at Penn State Children’s Hospital. I’m asking you to consider supporting this movement by making a gift of $100 to celebrate the 100 days remaining until THON 2019.
A gift of $100 will provide four hours of music therapy for a family impacted by childhood cancer so that they can communicate and heal in their own way. As a community, we remain dedicated to the deeper meaning behind the monetary amount that we raise in hopes that kids are able to create positive memories despite this disease.
Join us in the fight against childhood cancer by making a gift today. Together with the continued help of our generous supporters, we will one day dance in celebration of a cure.
For The Kids™,
THON 2019 Executive Director
