Spirits High As THON 2015 Passes 12-Hour Mark

In what seems like a blink of an eye, #THON15 is a quarter of the way over.

The first 12 hours of THON provided an introduction to the line dance, THON’s Got Talent, some solid music, and the dancers’ first respite from standing during Slides of Strength. There hasn’t been a lull in the Bryce Jordan Center yet, with dancers and attendees still wide awake enough to keep moving (“Come on Eileen” and “Hey Ya!” were a few of the early crowd-pleasers). The BJC has yet to see its upper deck fill up, but that hasn’t dampened the energy in here. We’ve already got 34 hours of THON 2015 left.

If you’re just waking up and about to head to THON, make sure you bundle up — it’s going to be cold. Also, make sure you catch up on whatever you missed with our live blog. As always, stick with us throughout the weekend for non-stop, wall-to-wall coverage.

Stay strong, dancers!
