Words never can describe the magic of THON weekend. After we missed THON last year one of our main goals was “to get Emily to another THON”. And we did! It was so exciting to be back! The THON community was such a huge support system for us over the past few years and particularly over the past year. THON raised $12,374,034.46 which is incredible. Thank you to everyone who donated!! Thank you to our dancers, Chelsea and Devin, who stood for 46 hours (THON dancers (all 700+ of them) do not sleep or sit for 46 hours straight)! Enjoy the photos! And THANK YOU to everyone who purchased the Emily Believe magnets to benefit THON! If you would like one you can still order them here.

Devin and Chelsea were two of the 700+ who participated as THON dancers and did not sleep or sit for 46-hours straight to raise money for pediatric cancer patients.
