0 THON, Let’s Talk About Healthcare

I am proud to be part of this student body that financially and emotionally supports Four Diamonds Children and their families. From firsthand experience, I know this generosity means the world to these families, especially the life-long relationships with THON orgs. So, it is out of my awe and appreciation for all that these organizations do for families, students, and the community, that I urge THON to go further. I challenge THON to address and discuss the root causes of this philanthropic need: the healthcare system in the United States.

But the truth is that I’ll be there in spirit somewhere — standing, fidgeting, nervously swaying, joyously jumping, etc. — from the opening kickoff to the final play of the game. And after it’s over, after the clock hits triple zeroes and the whole wild ride of the 2016 season has concluded and it’s time to exit those gates, I hope that all you Penn Staters fortunate enough to be in that stadium will have the chance to walk outside, across the parking plot plains, look back one last time at that iconic neon-lit sign, and whisper out into the California night — We got back, man. We got back.
