Arrive Early, Arrive Often
Carly Littlehale of Gamma Phi Beta showed up early with her sisters to secure the best location in the stands, and were the third organization to get in line. Considering their spot right next to the floor, the extra wait time was worth it. The Gamma Phi Beta/Acacia team, as most teams have, scheduled shifts to make sure they reserve their spot. At least a few members of their 250 person team will be here all weekend. Littlehale, at THON for the first time, said she plans to be here for at least 30 hours of the 46 hour event.
This THON is particularly poignant for the team, as their THON child, Jed Smith, passed away in January. Still, Littlehale said this hasn’t discouraged her team or their seven dancers.
Check back for more updates, we’ll keep you updated on different organizations throughout the weekend.
