Senator Bob Casey and Representative Glenn Thompson are both FTK.

The U.S. Congressman and Senator tweeted out their support for #THON2014 earlier today, with Thompson even announcing his plans to attend THON tonight.

Despite never attending Penn State, Casey is a native of Pennsylvania and has vocally supported of THON in the past, even filing a resolution to congratulate THON in 2012. Thompson is a Bellefonte native, a Penn State alumnus, and has supported Pennsylvania’s 5th congressional district since 2008. He congratulated THON two years ago before Congress.

While these two may not have the national recognition of Khloe Kardashian, it’s always great to see notable people vocally supporting THON. Hopefully the support keeps coming in!

THON - The IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon (THON), the most ubiquitous event on campus, has been in existence since 1973. THON currently benefits the Four Diamonds Fund at the Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center Childrenā€™s Hospital and has raised over $100,000,000 since its inception. Read more
