Student Sends Video To ‘The Ellen Show’ In Hopes She Recognizes THON

Penn State senior Nicole Fliegelman created a seven-minute long video resembling Ellen Degeneres’ Five Second Rule game. Except this time, the questions all centered around THON. Fliegelman, a huge fan of the show, said that her biggest dream is for Ellen to recognize THON.

“This organization means the world to me and countless other individuals, especially the Four Diamonds families and children,” Fliegelman said. “Everything we do all year round is For The Kids (FTK) and we will continue to fight until one day, when all pediatric cancer is curable, we can dance in celebration together.”

Fliegelman created the video in hopes that Ellen will make her dream come true and recognize and support THON. “I’ve written in numerous times to catch Ellen’s attention, but to no avail,” Fliegelman mentioned, “So, I decided to get creative and have our own THON Edition of one of Ellen’s favorite games, Five Second Rule.” 

THON almost always gets shout-outs from prominent celebrities like Khloe Kardashian and Good Morning America Host and alumna Lara Spencer. Recognition from Ellen would certainly be a welcomed addition to the list, as she draws around 4 million viewers a day and would undoubtedly help spread the word about THON.
