[Photo Story] THON Through The Lens Of A Disposable Camera

There’s something magical about shooting with a disposable camera, and we’ve already found that Penn State looks great on film. So, at this year’s THON, we set out with a disposable camera to capture the spirit of the event one shot at a time.

While disposable cameras aren’t meant to shoot wide shots indoors, there’s something cool about seeing the faint glow of the four diamonds in this frame.

The Pep Rally was a ton of fun, and thanks to the help of the Nittany Lion’s excitement, men’s soccer was able to take home the crown.

Penn State celebrities like Super Bowl champion Nick Scott, TikTok star Katie Feeney, and the Nittany Lion all stopped by to enjoy the evening and support THON.

There were tons of guests at the Pep Rally and the Fashion Show, including some VIPs to remind everyone who we were dancing for.

Down on the floor, dancers were using the line dance to keep their spirits up as they entered the final hours.

The Slides of Strength were, as always, a fan favorite among dancers and OPP members alike.

THON 2022 was a smashing success and raised a record $13,756,374.50 For The Kids. We’re glad we were able to capture some of these moments on film so that we can preserve this amazing moment for years to come.
