THON 2012 Weekend Coverage Wrap-Up

What a year and what a weekend. Penn State students overcame enormous sets of obstacles over the past four-and-a-half months to raise $10,686,924.83 FOR THE KIDS. Onward State (or rather, our alter ego @THONwardState) was there all weekend long to provide you with coverage of this year’s amazing event.

Here is the story on the total reveal and the organization totals: THON 2012 Breaks $10 Million by Dan Vecellio
