THON To Host Annual Candlelight Vigil February 1

This week, THON will host its annual candlelight vigil to honor those who lost their lives to pediatric cancer. The vigil will run from 6 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, February 11, in 134 HUB.

The organization will light luminary vigil bags, which are typically associated with other cancer-fighting efforts like Relay for Life, in commemoration of those gone too soon.

THON encourages volunteers to remember why they do what they do. The children celebrated during the vigil will also be remembered in the Celebration of Life video during THON Weekend’s “Family Hour” on Sunday, February 20.

THON 2022 is slated to return to the Bryce Jordan Center from Friday, February 18 to Sunday, February 20. Hundreds of dancers will stand for 46 hours to benefit Four Diamonds, THON’s beneficiary, to show support for the fight against pediatric cancer.

We dance in 18!
