Meet Michael Funk

Location: Ashburn, VA

Connection to Four Diamonds: I was involved with THON as a Penn State student.

Years of Involvement: 2002-2007

How are/were you involved with Four Diamonds and THON? 
I was the THON 2006 IFC AVP (Interfraternity Council Associate Vice President) and the THON 2007 Overall Chairperson.

Why is the partnership between Four Diamonds and THON important?
The partnership between Four Diamonds and THON is one that will last forever. Four Diamonds families and Penn State students have such a unique and special bond. 

What is your favorite memory? 
My favorite memory would have to be the first night of THON 2007. With it being our first year in the BJC, we were curious and nervous how everything would go. Seeing the BJC packed with students, alumni, Four Diamonds families, etc., we knew we had made the right decision.

What is your dream for Four Diamonds and THON over the next 40 years?
To continue working diligently to raise money to support the Four Diamonds families and support research that will one day find a cure for childhood cancer.
