In the final installment of the THON Overall Series, Family Relations Overall Kaylee Tully explains the support system her committee provides for the Four Diamonds Families, and the importance pediatric cancer awareness holds within the THON community. As my interview series comes to a conclusion, for all of those who have stuck with me through the months, I challenge all to seriously consider the many lessons learned from this year's leaders. Let their passion be your passion, and if you have the opportunity to step inside the BJC this weekend, show every child, parent, student, and unfamiliar face the love that fills the spirits from these fourteen individuals of whom I am proud to call my friends.
Communications serves as the "voice" of THON to the Penn State community, which includes students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Find out what they do for THON throughout the year and during THON weekend in this installment of THON 101.
Tomorrow, we dance. And to dance, you need music. Onward State is here to provide you with said music.
When it comes to doing creative and cool things- Penn Staters do it the best. When we want a White House at Beaver Stadium, we get 110,000 people to wear all white. When we want to help beat cancer, we raise millions of dollars and dance for 46 hours to help ease the burden on pediatric cancer patients and their families. In a few days, Penn State will have the chance to combine both of these things and white out THON 2012. It has been spreading around campus and social media sites that for the first time in THON's history, the Pep Rally will be a White Out.
Will Martin, Overall OPPerations Chairperson for THON 2012, is the guy making sure the Bryce Jordan Center is looking its best this weekend. It all starts Wednesday night when Martin will pick up all the dancer and kids mail from the HUB-Robeson Center and deliver it outside the BJC in a trailer where it will remain until THON begins. The Morale Committee has been working hard to sort all the mail this week in order to have it ready for distribution THON weekend.
