Dear THON Community,

Last year, THON was able to come home to the Bryce Jordan Center for the first time in two years. We were able to rise to new heights together – reconnecting with Four Diamonds families in-person, setting new records for fundraising, recruiting thousands of new student volunteers, and engage people from all over the world with THON’s mission.

I am Lily Pevoto, and I am lucky to serve as the Executive Director for THON 2023. The past four years as a THON Volunteer have taught me invaluable lessons about resilience, leadership, friendship, trust, and what it means to give your all to a cause that truly makes a difference. This year, I am committed to giving all I can to ensure that every volunteer, alumnus, parent, donor, and supporter is able to understand the impact of each dollar raised and moment shared with children and families impacted by childhood cancer.

This year, we have the momentous opportunity to build on the progress made by 50 years of passionate and dedicated THON Volunteers. We will work together to develop new initiatives, build more meaningful moments for children and teens, carry on the legacy of our angels and grow in the ways we support each other and our families in hopes of one day having a cure for childhood cancer. I am so excited to see the impact that we will have this year, together.

One day we will dance in celebration—until then we dance for a cure.

For The Kids®,

Lily Pevoto
