    Wanted to get the word out there on what Penn State is doing. THON, the WORLDS LARGEST student run philanthropy is capping off this weekend. THON Weekend begins at 6 pm Friday and ends at 4 pm Sunday afternoon. Students from Penn State stay awake for those 46 hours dancing for the kids. Last year PSU raised $7.8 Million towards helping kids with cancer. Driven by the courage, strength, and dreams of these young kids battling an extremely unfortunate disease, Penn State students will push through blisters, cramps, keeping hydrated, and exhaustion. Families and children have come to Happy Valley so their kids and themselves as parents can see how many people care. Especially in the final moments when the final number is shown that support is out there for them.
