THON Dancers Ready for Big Weekend
Penn State DuBois students Joey Schaeffer of Lyons, Illinois and Chase Lyle of Brookville have been chosen to represent the campus at THON this year. As the campus dancers, the pair will travel to the Bryce Jordan Center at University Park where they and thousands of others will attempt to dance and stay on their feet for 46 hours.
The DuBois THON Committee broke their own record by raising $15,748 for their cause this year; that's up from the nearly $14,000 they raised last year. The DuBois committee supports the efforts of THON that reach throughout all of Penn State. Money raised by THON is donated, each year, to the Four Diamonds Fund, a leader in the support of childhood cancer research. University-wide, THON raised over $9.5 million last year.
THON begins Friday, and will wrap up on Sunday.
