Alpha Zeta's THON fundraising year is off to a strong start. In October, Family Relations chairs Jillian Gordon and Allison Hartman traveled to help the Kemberlings, Alpha Zeta's paired THON family, celebrate THON child Chase's fifth birthday. They also joined the family to participate in the Conquer Run, a 5K race/walk in Hershey to benefit the Four Diamonds Fund.

In November, the Kemberling family hosted members of the active chapter for a canning weekend at their home in Lebanon, Pa. The weekend was very successful, with just over $1,000 dollars raised. The actives are looking forward to spending their next canning weekend in Niagara County, NY, hosted by the family of Brother Will Ziemendorf.

The Kemberling family also attended the THON Family Carnival on November 16 at University Park, accompanied by FR chair Jill Gordon. Afterward, the actives hosted the family at the house for some food and fun.

Lastly, THON recently released a video profiling the Kemberlings. Visit THON's YouTube channel to watch the video titled, "THON's Family Focus: The Chase Kemberling Family," which profiles the family's journey thus far both with THON and Alpha Zeta.
