Join us at our second annual Knight-a-Thon! We are raising funds for the Pediatric Oncology Support Team, Inc. (POST). Donations from Knight-a-Thon: Going Gold helps provide families with support, teach new skills, offer new perspectives and help to reinforce their natural resiliency. The dedicated pediatric oncologists and nurses provide the medical care that children need while POST provides everything else. Learn more about POST.
The Lynn Leadership Institute is currently working to raise funds while volunteering and interacting with POST, Inc. patients and their families in the months leading up to this wonderful event.
What happens at Knight-a-Thon?
Knight-a-Thon: Going Gold at Lynn University is an extended fundraising effort hosted by the Lynn Leadership Institute within the Division of Student Affairs. In order to celebrate the patients and families treated through Pediatric Oncology Support Team, Inc. (POST), this event culminates into a 12-hour, nonstop dance party with students, staff, and members of the local community.
Why do we dance?
The vision of POST is that no family walks their child’s cancer journey alone. We have an ultimate vision of a world without childhood cancer. Until then, our vision is that every family who has a child battling cancer will have a team of caring professionals walk with them through their cancer journey, giving the emotional and financial support they need.
There are two major ways to get involved with Knight-a-Thon: Going Gold. You can get involved by being a dancer or if you're unable to attend, simply raising funds!
