For over the past 40 years penn state has had an annual 46 hour no sleeping no sitting dance marathon to raise money for research and the families of kids with pediatric cancer. THON is the worlds largest student run philanthrapy. Last year we raised 10.686 million dollars upping our total to 89 million dollars. This year I'm lucky enough to be one of the 708 dancers who will be standing for all 46 hours.
For every upvote this thread gets ill donate 10 cents to THON (I would do a dollar per UV but I'm pretty sure the last thread like this had over 1200 UV's and as a poor college cannot afford that). If you feel the urge donate more you can at www.thon.org
THON is in 15 days so ill cut this off at Wednesday 2/13 at 10:00 pm
Thanks in advance guys--- Eddy

A THON tradition, listening to this kid sing.
Tucker, age 9, performs "Boom Boom Pow" by the Black Eyed Peas for more than 15,000 at the Penn State Dance Marathon (THON) in February 2010. Tucker was diagnosed with cancer at age 2 but has been cancer-free for nearly three years.
THON is a 46-hour, no-sitting, no-sleeping dance marathon that benefits The Four Diamonds Fund, a pediatric cancer program at Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital. Behind Tucker are his adoptive organization's dancers, who were standing strong for 46 hours in support of Tucker and other families battling pediatric cancer.
Dancing is a physical challenge, but it is nothing compared to the hardships that Four Diamonds families endure each day. Penn State students can't erase the hospital visits, the spinal taps or the chemo treatments, but they can give families something to look forward to and the assurance that they're not alone.

THON is a yearlong fundraising and awareness campaign that benefits the Four Diamonds Fund out of Penn State Hershey Medical Center. Together, we will conquer pediatric cancer. FTK!
Just sent Micheal Ringenbach an email requesting info on corporate donations. Great thread!
