THON Raised $7,838,054 For The Kids!


When I found out that the Penn State students raised  $7,838,054 for pediatric cancer research I seriously died…I just couldn’t believe it. I knew that it was the biggest student-run philanthropy in the world, but just seeing that number still somehow put me into a state of shock.  Keep in mind these are STUDENTS who are devoting all of their college time to such an incredible cause — seeing all of their hard work pay off honestly brought tears to my eyes.  ESPECIALLY in this economy, the fact they were still able to beat last year’s total is unreal and I don’t think anyone was expecting that.

I just wanted to do this post to tell the thousands of people who put their time, energy and heart into THON how proud I am of all of you and how much you have inspired me since I learned about your wonderful charity. Thank you so much for everything you do and keep on fighting.  It’s because of people like you that I truly believe that one day we will find a cure.
For The Kids,
