THON Awareness Week

Starting Monday, THON volunteers will be in the HUB promoting awareness of everything from pediatric cancer facts to information about The Four Diamonds Fund. Each day will consist of various activities including entertainment from Penn State a’capella groups and a discussion panel.

On Monday, aka “THON Day”, visit the first floor of the HUB where there will be Supply Logistics Captains selling raffle tickets and Communications Captains running a ‘happy quarters’ table. Public Relations will also be there asking people to sign a pledge saying they will complete random acts of kindness, and Morale will have a table set up for making kids mail. The all-female a’capella group Savoir Faire will perform at noon, followed by The Singing Lions at 1pm. Ending out the day will be one of the last performances of the THON 2010 line dance.

Visit the HUB auditorium on Tuesday from 12:30-1:15 for a discussion panel about The Four Diamonds Fund. If you’ve ever wondered where all of the money raised by THON goes and how it is used, stop by and have all of your questions answered. Members on the panel will be Family Relations Overall Chairperson Sean Tucker, Four Diamonds Fund children, and a representative from the Four Diamonds Advisory Board.

Wednesday is “Gold Ribbon Day” the ribbon which symbolizes pediatric cancer. Merch will be selling new gold ribbon t shirts during a mini-merch sale.

Lastly, Thursday’s event is a surprise and our advise is to get to the HUB around 12:30 in order to check it out. A word of advise to the THON-apathetic Penn Stater: if the 100 Days Til THON celebration annoyed you, you might want to consider either a. taking time to learn more about the cause this week or b. avoiding the HUB during these hours.

I'm quite odd, a little creepy, and pretty awkward, but we'd probably get along.

In real life I'm a THON 2011 Supply Logistics Captain, a Homecoming 2010 Public Relations Captain, a member of Zeta Tau Alpha, a dancer in ETCH Dance Co. and I tweet a lot.

“If you’ve ever seen the movie You’ve Got Mail, you’ll understand me when I say I have the “Kathleen Kelly Syndrome.” I often have trouble saying exactly what I mean. Instead, I find it easier to outsource by using quotes or songs to convey my message. That’s why you’ll find a few of my favorites scattered throughout this post: my senior column.”
