LEV (Live for Every Victory)

We have two dancers in THON 2020: Jack McCune and Sarah Sher! You make us proud.

Here is what Jack said about dancing this year: “I’m dancing in THON  for so many great reasons. Standing up for 46 hours straight will hurt for sure, but not nearly as much as the pain that the Four Diamonds Families have felt. I hope they have the time of their lives at THON 2020.”  

LEV is a Hillel-powered organization that benefits THON. We support Penn State’s Dance MaraTHON by fundraising for the Four Diamonds Fund. We offer support for our THON child Layn Burger, and his family. And we pride ourselves on fostering a meaningful connection with our family and experience with THON for each of our members.

Our Mission/ who we are:

As Hillel’s THON organization, LEV (Live for Every Victory), our mission is to financially and emotionally support the Four Diamonds Fund. Our year long fundraising efforts culminate in Penn State’s 46-hour no sitting, no sleeping dance maraTHON! We pride ourselves on fostering a meaningful connection with Layn, our THON child, and his family and creating a sense of community for each of our members.

About Lev:

LEV was founded in 2005 as Penn State’s Jewish Organization benefiting THON. Since 2005, LEV has raised over $200,000. LEV’s THON child Layn is a 14 year old boy who loves basketball, drawing, and anime! Our THON family includes his two brothers Romeo and Mason, his mother Tami, his dad Lonnie, and step dad Ralfi and we love them all so much!
