THON 2021 Cardboard Cutouts On Sale

Although THON 2021 will take place virtually, you can still make sure you’ll be there one way or another.

THON will fill the Bryce Jordan Center with cardboard cutouts in February in lieu of traditional spectators. Students can purchase theirs for $15, while non-students can grab one for $45 apiece.

THON supporters can also purchase $45 cutouts for Four Diamonds families.

A portion of the proceeds from each purchase will benefit THON and can be credited to an organization of your choosing.

To grab yours, head to the online THON store. There, you can purchase as many as you’d like and submit your photos at checkout. Students should check out using their Penn State emails.

Although THON didn’t provide specific guidelines for usable photos, its website includes a disclaimer noting the organization can reject submitted photos and request alternates if they’re inappropriate or unusable.

THON 2021 will officially kick off on Friday, February 19, and stretch through Saturday, February 21. This year’s theme, “Rise And Unify,” hopes to “uplift” the THON and Penn State communities, as exemplified by its logo.
