Khloé Kardashian Tweets ‘Good Luck’ To THON Participants

Over the years, THON has caught the attention of a wide variety of high-profile celebrities, from Harry Potter’s Tom Felton to comedian Jimmy Fallon to actress Lindsay Lohan. But no celebrity has been as consistent as Khloe Kardashian.

Tweeting Friday to her 12.9 million followers, the reality star sent her best wishes to all the Penn Staters participating in THON this weekend.

Kardashian has publicly supported THON since 2010. Each year since then, she has blogged and tweeted about THON to  encourage her followers to donate to the fight against pediatric cancer. She’s also been known to post promotional videos and photos from the THON total reveal and 100 Days ’til THON.

Here’s what she posted to her blog for THON 2013:

Happy THON weekend my loves!!!!! I just wanted to take a moment to wish you all luck as you begin one of the most incredible yet challenging weekend of your lives as you dance for a cure against pediatric cancer. 46 hours without sitting or sleeping?! I’m not sure I could do it! I am so inspired by your hard work and devotion to the Four Diamonds kids and their families. What you do for them is truly incredible, and because of people like you, I know we will find a cure someday. Thank you for everything you do!

Thanks for the support, Khloe! Hopefully she’s only the first of many celebrities to publicly support THON this year.
