[THON weekend]

Its the THON weekend…

“….largest student-run philanthropy in the world, the Penn State IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon (THON)! THON is a year round fund raising event benefiting The Four Diamonds Fund, Conquering Childhood Cancer, at the Penn State Children’s Hospital in Hershey, PA. The year culminates in a no-sitting, no-sleeping, two day dance marathon held every February. Over the past 34 years, the students of THON have raised more than $41 million and have helped thousands of children and families fight pediatric cancer….

Basically, the main event for this weekend is the Penn State Dance Marathon where the dancers will dance non-stop for 48 hours. For over 34 years, the dance was held at the Rec Hall, but for the first time this year, they’re going to have it at the Bryce Jordan Center . And they’re only going to dance for 46 hours this year as the basketball team need to use BJC for practice. I never watch the dance ‘live’ before. Last year I watched the live telecast on TV (yeah..it was aired LIVE for 48 hours if i’m not mistaken). Perhaps should ajak some ppl pg BJC..Its quite far though..

[many hearts one home..]
