PA Congressmen Propose THON Recognition

Representative Glenn Thompson and Senators Bob Casey and Pat Toomey have introduced a resolution to give a Congressional recognition to the record-breaking efforts of THON 2013.

Known formally as House Resolution 103 for the 113th United States Congress, the resolution recognizes the efforts of Penn State students and congratulates ” the Pennsylvania State University IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon on its continued success in support of the Four Diamonds Fund at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital.”

“The compassion and commitment of Penn State’s students — as well as their endurance on the dance floor — are inspiring to me and all Pennsylvanians,” said Senator Toomey in a news release. “Penn State should be extremely proud of their work.”

The resolution has yet to be voted on, but one would think this won’t fall victim to typical political bickering, unless a large chunk of US Congressmen went to Michigan or something. You can view the resolution below.
