OT:Donating to THON

I've known a lot of you for quite some time between this board, 247, and when I was on FightonState under the username Feetforlove.

Pretty much all of you know about THON, but what you may not know about is why I am trying to independently dance. Last year Nittany Nation was paired up with the Kreider family. This past year I became extremely close with the older son, Dylan. The first day we met, he told me that he is a Michigan fan, but don't worry he is no longer and now true to Penn State. Their younger son, Evan, passed away this past June following his 5th birthday.

I'm not too good with words, but I am trying to independently dance this year for the Kreiders in memory of Evan and so I can spend time with Dylan. I would have danced for Nittany Nation, and was nominated to, however there were 2 other people more deserving than I. Please help me raise money to be able to dance for Kreiders.

You can donate online by these steps:

  • Go to THON.org
  • Click 'Donate Now'
  • Click the option that say 'Click to support the THON Organization or Dancer of your choice'
  • Select 'Matthew Brady and Emily Schwartz'

Since most of you are alum, remember to donate to through the organizations that you were a part of when you were at Penn State too. Thank you very much. We are!
