Club WaPo Gets Props for THON Fundraiser
For about two weeks this fall, this writer had the privilege (or punishment) of attending water polo club practices. Those guys are pretty hard– their practices run from 10 to midnight every night. My sleep soon took priority, as did this little blog called Onward State, but so it goes.
The WaPo guys aren’t all blood, sweat, and chlorine though. The Collegiate Water Polo Association ran an article this week describing how the team raised money for THON. See, they couldn’t get away for all of the canning weekends due to matches, and a little car problem.
“Our team didn’t have enough cars available to make a canning trip that would actually produce a good amount of money. So, we decided to host a water polo tournament instead.”
The Nittany Lions and six other teams, at an entry fee of $350, “unless a team volunteered someone to referee at least one Round 1 game – then it was $300,” according to Palski, joined together to play for the cause and raise $1,700 along the way.
The tournament was held over Valentine’s Day weekend.

With no canning weekends held this year and canvassing eventually suspended as well, this year’s total is a testament to how committed THON volunteers truly are.
Totals aside, congratulations to every organization that volunteered with THON throughout this year to raise more than $10 million for the kids.
