5000+ Run THON 5K

_DSC1587This past Sunday more than 5000 people participated in the 9th annual THON 5K. The THON 5K is the first major event of the 2009/2010 THON season. The 5K route took runners through campus, starting in front of the IM building and going down University then across Pollock and up Fraser street, and then onto Curtin to finish back at the IM building.

Registration for the 5K was $15.00 a person, which means that with over 5000 runners, over $45,000 was raised for THON just through this event. This years registration of 5000 eclipses last year’s total of 3,500 by 30%, which is pretty sweet.

Upcoming THON events include the 100 days until THON celebration November 11 in the HUB. The family carnival takes place on the 15th when the THON 2010 logo will be revealed (invitation only) and the second canning weekend is coming up on December 4-6.

Three Words: For the Glory

When I sat back one night in January thinking about my time at Penn State, I tried to come up with a single word that would adequately describe my experiences here. As I attempted to determine what that magic word might be, my mind began to grasp the absurdity of that challenge. How could I possibly distill four years of my life, countless friendships, and untold numbers of memories, down to a single word? An impossible task to be sure. So instead, I took the easier road and went with three words: For the Glory.
