Why We Dance Poem, THON 2014
For forty-one years we’ve danced;
For forty-six hours we stand.
For the final four, we forego sleep,
To feel the reach of our helping hand.
Throughout the year we fundraise,
Through THONvelopes, THONline, and merch.
We canvass and can for those who can’t,
And support Hershey’s cancer research.
We fight to beat kid’s cancer;
We fight for long, healthy lives.
We fight for entire families;
We fight so the future may thrive.
But why does Penn State do this?
Raise diamonds in the sky like stars?
Why do 15,000 students help?
Because THON is who WE ARE.
