I plan on writing a lot this weekend and updating you on THON happenings. If you are interested in this AMAZING Dance Marathon Penn State Puts On every year you can check out the LIVE Webcast (which I am helping as a cameralady) at www.THON.org. There will also be DANCER BLOGS!!! I LOVE These because Dancers are CRAZY! I should know I was one in 2007!
So at 4pm The madness starts! Pre THON starts at 5:15 and then we STAND at 6pm!!! I AM PUMPED!!!
THON is a dance marathon where Penn State Students stand for 46 hrs to help raise money for Kids with Pediatric Cancer, The Hershey Medical Center, and the Four Diamonds Fund. We STAND without sleeping for 46 hrs to show those who are fighting, those who have won, those who have lost, their families and their friends that THEY ARE NOT ALONE! This weekend we strive to put smiles on kids faces no matter how bad our legs hurt. We laugh and sing and cry and celebrate life in all forms!! This weekend we FIGHT for a CURE!
THON begins in the fall and builds until February and THON weekend. We are here to love and to share and to witness.
One Day we will dance in celebration but for now, we dance for a CURE!
FTK KIDS! I AM SO PROUD OF ALL OF YOU! SHANA, LAUREN, CARRIE, LEO, ALI, RYAN, BECCA, MY MORALERS!, MY CAPTAINS, EVERYONE I KNOW INVOLVED IN THON! YOU GUYS ROCKS!
