THON 2013

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2013
12:30pm-3:30pm


Once again, troopers, it's time for one of the most unique, challenging, fun events of the year--THON! The Penn State Panhellenic Dance Marathon (THON) is a year-long fundraising event held by the Greek societies at Penn State University to raise money and awareness for pediatric cancer. The largest student-run philanthropic effort of its kind in the world, THON raised over TEN MILLION DOLLARS for their sole charity, The Four Diamonds Fund, in 2012.

I usually write out a description of the who/what/when/where/why of THON to introduce it to folks who may not be familiar; this year I want to show you what THON is all about, and hope that you can catch some of the excitement of this weekend:

THON UPDATE

Garrett and I had a meeting with Megan (one of the Entertainment Captains for THON 2013) on Friday afternoon. We spoke with her about a few issues to make sure we were all on the same page.

FIRST, made sure that she understood the space requirements that we have--we showed her some pictures of last year's changing area at the loading dock. I think she definitely "got it" in terms of how much space we need, and seemed to be very clear with us that she will make sure we have sufficient space. We'll see!

SECOND, we talked about last year's issue with the elevator to the concourse. Again, she seemed to be very responsive to our explanation of the need for use of the elevator, and said that she would make sure that we had access to it to troop the concourse this year. (Time will tell...)

THIRD, we talked about the possibility this year of heading up to the third floor of the BJC to troop around the family rooms--skyboxes that are reserved for Four Diamonds families (sometimes with kids who can't manage the craziness of the floor.) Megan was very supportive of our suggestion to troop around that level to meet kids and families, so this will be a VERY exciting addition to this year's troop.

FOURTH, we talked about what kind of stage time we might work in to the event--two years back we all trooped up on the stage to introduce our time, and last year Chris and I went up to give an introduction. A few folks in Carida talked about putting together a video montage by way of introduction two years ago, but we didn't get to the execution stage with it. I think it would be great to have the Emperor flanked with two IRGs go up and make the announcement as part of the video, but that will depend on whether Ryan can get his Emperor done in time... wink2

All in all, I think it was good to sit down face-to-face with one of the Entertainment Captains--Megan will have to go back to her committees and supervisors (THON is incredibly bureaucratic--you really wouldn't believe it Rolling Eyes ), so it remains to be seen whether she can actually deliver on the things she's agreeing to work with us on, but definitely a productive start.

Going to be a great troop again this year--get those calendars cleared! Laughing

Is this a one day event? They mentioned in the video it's a marathon of 48 hours. Do we actually dance or what?
