[Photo Story] 2022 THON 5K

THON kicked off its series of fundraising events for the year with the annual THON 5K this weekend. Students, families, and friends all enjoyed a day filled with fun activities and running (or walking) For The Kids.

Here’s a closer look at the day through our photographers’ lenses.

Folks enjoyed a quick pep rally that included the line dance from this past year’s THON, the cheerleaders, and the wrestling team tossing shirts to the crowd.

Our furry friends also enjoyed the nice weather and good energy throughout the morning.

Many participants wore bright-colored tutus while on the run.

Morale was high as friends cheered each other on.

The finish line was full of Four Diamonds hand signals, hugs, and hydration.

We dance in 123!
