Updated THON 2017 Event Calendar Released

THON 2017 is 284 days away, but you don’t have to wait that long to pitch in. THON released an updated 2017 calendar today full of events leading up to the February 17-19 weekend so you can be FTK all year round.

The Phillies kick off the series of summer baseball games benefitting THON on July 21, followed by a THON Pirates game August 9. The State College Spikes’ THON Night is set for August 30, with tickets available only at the box office from August 22-August 29. The Nationals finish off THON’s baseball nights with one on September 30.

Then the calendar progresses to the school year, with canning weekend one slated for September 23-25. The 16th annual THON 5k will take place on October 16. Canning weekend two (the final canning weekend of the year) is scheduled for October 28-30. The 100 Days ’till THON Celebration will happen precisely 100 days before THON on November 9. The Family Carnival will be held on December 4 as the last event before the big weekend.

THON hasn’t announced dates for the anticipated THON Football, THON Soccer, and THON Hoops nights yet, but stay tuned.
