THON 2010…Coverage Onward State Style

THON's Total Revealed

THON's Total RevealedThis weekend, I spent many hours experiencing something amazing. I covered what I believe is one of the greatest collegiate endeavors ever attempted. THON 2010.

During my coverage time with Onward State, I worked with great people and got to see what goes on behind the scenes and up close what THON accomplishes.

THON doesn’t just start on Friday and end on Sunday, THON starts almost a year in advance, and so did Onward State’s coverage. We started covering many stories related to THON and how THON operates, we contacted THON PR and talked with many THON representatives to makes sure you would receive the best THON coverage we could offer. We worked Google Wave in ways it shouldn’t be worked in order to coordinate stories, tweets, photos, and blog production. We reworked our site’s backend. We rebranded. We operated two twitter accounts (@OnwardState, @THONwardState). We wrote 46 stories. We wrote a continuous live blog. We interviewed. We photographed. We THON’ed! It was a huge team effort. So much so that we are now syndicated by the HUFFINGTON POST!

It all ended this past weekend and I couldn’t be happier to help be a part of it.

THON is an amazing organization and I urge you to help in making this event happen again next year, but I’m equally proud of my team of Onward State writers, photographers, and editors. You guys were great this weekend.

But enough of that. Here are 116 photos of the party at the end of the fundraising year that we call THON. Enjoy.
