Alumni Association To Host THON 2022 White Out Pep Rally

The Penn State Alumni Association will sponsor THON’s Pep Rally for the fourth consecutive year on Saturday, February 19, at the Bryce Jordan Center.

Yet again, the organization is calling for an arena-wide White Out to celebrate the event. Each year, THON’s Pep Rally hosts performances from Penn State’s athletic teams right on the BJC’s center stage.

“THON has been an important part of the Penn State experience for 50 years and its impact is a point of pride for Penn State alumni around the world,” Alumni Association CEO Paul Clifford said in a release. “Even in challenging circumstances, the work of THON volunteers and alumni that support this effort continues to inspire. The Alumni Association is always proud to partner with THON and play a role in the fight to end childhood cancer.”  

THON 2022’s 46-hour dance marathon begins on Friday, February 18, and will end on Sunday, February 20. This year, the event is back in person for the first time since 2020.

We dance in three days!
