In addition, as a permanent tribute to Hill, a plaque honoring her is displayed in the student affairs office located in the Joe and Rosie Ruhl Student Community Center. This office area, which offers a variety of student services, is also the home to the Student Government Association (SGA).
Basketball players, as well as many others attending the games, will wear #fightlikehill shirts at the event to show their support. The phrase, Fight like Hill,” became the mantra of Dover community members and others as they supported Hill in her battles with cancer. The phrase lives on as a symbol of Hill’s tenacity and determination.
Penn State York men’s baseball team will sell drinks and snacks on Jan. 14 with proceeds going to support THON and children battling pediatric cancer.
Donations for THON 2020 in support of York’s three dancers Paige Barlow, Alvin Chen and Jen Taylor, can still be made, and will be accepted at the Hill event. Donors may also give online. Donations made to the Penn State York Benefiting THON will be credited to the campus and then added to the final THON total at University Park. Checks in support of THON should be made payable to: Penn State Dance Marathon or THON, and sent to Penn State York, 1031 Edgecomb Ave., York, PA 17403. Be sure to note York, Org. 170 in the memo line of the check.
THON is the world’s largest student-run philanthropy, engaging more than 16,500 students and 25,000 alumni in the fight against childhood cancer. THON’s yearlong fundraising and awareness campaign culminates in a 46-hour no-sitting, no-sleeping dance marathon every February. Since 1977, THON has donated more than $157 million to Four Diamonds at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital, funding comprehensive care and critical research.
