Our student volunteers put in countless hours of work each year towards ensuring that THON, year-round, always remain a success. We would like to show just how grateful we are for your dedication to THON during your time as a student. Every volunteer contributes in a unique way and each of them is invaluable to the longevity of our organization.

Quotes from Student Volunteers

"THON has been my home since 2007. As a student volunteer, I have found my family which has given my life purpose. I am eternally grateful for every opportunity that I have had over the course of my college career. Through the Dancer Relations Committee and my paired organization, Sigma Phi Epsilon, I was able to find roles that allowed me to give back to the organization that saved my life."
Nick Vicidomini, THON 2021 Dancer Relations Director

“I never saw my life being so entwined with an organization like this, so overall I’m just extremely grateful for everything THON has given me and I’m so happy that I got to do it. It’s truly a privilege to get to participate in an organization like this.”
Rachel Brettler, THON 2019 Family Relations Captain

Quotes from THON Community Members

“They [students] just make me happy. They’re awesome.”
Celia Cosentino

"We know all about the incredible doctors and nurses, but there are so many other people who helped Celia fight and heal. For almost a year, Celia’s paired organization, Ultimate Frisbee, reached out tirelessly with barely a reply from us. Now we are out of the fight and they are still with us and they have become a huge part of our family. Berks Benefit - ing THON welcomed us in when they didn’t have to - we already had a paired org. But they recognize how hard it is to be a sibling of a child with cancer and were a huge support to Adeline while Celia was in the hospital and have continued to include us all in their events."
Sara Cosentino, Celia’s mom
