[Photo Story] THON Explorers Program

As THON Weekend chugs along, there’s plenty going on outside of the Bryce Jordan Center For The Kids.

The THON Explorers Program invited THON families to join the Penn State football team in activities at Holuba Hall, the team’s indoor training facility. Our visual staff was on site to give you a look at all things THON during the 46-hour stretch.

Take a look at some moments captured by our photographers.

Activities included parachute games, four-way volleyball, corn hole, tricycle races, and more.

Ice cream, face painting, giant Jenga, and karaoke were among other offerings at Holuba, and it was surprisingly difficult to tell whether the kids or football players were the bigger Swifties.

Many players invited kids to run routes with them, and they were impressive. It’s not out of the realm of possibility that we see some of these folks take on Beaver Stadium in the not-so-distant future…and not as spectators.

Light refreshments were provided for the kids, many of whom seemed to be more partial to the Creamery ice cream than anything else. As the event came to a close, the families and team gathered for a group picture before breaking up to dish out autographs.
