Saw this on tBB and thought this is a good cause, and should be shared here since a lot of folks don't venture to tBB. The poster will donate 10 cents every upvote, so upvote for a good cause.
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 fa
Between stuff like this and the other PSU posters on our board (psubills, etc), PSU is quickly becoming one of my favorite fanbases. Especially on this site.
Looking forward to making a trip to Happy Valley this year.

As a PSU grad I've participated in this the past 8 years or so. Great cause.
It really is a great cause, guys.
Who is downvoting that thread?
Yeah, that really confused me. Someone who's pro-cancer?
It's either people who think I'm just doing it to get upvotes or Pitt fans.... You should see them bitching about PSU students raising money at pirates games and shit, some of them think we fundraiser it Pittsburgh just to rub it in their face or something... I shit you not.
Here's a sample of Pitt comments on THON from their board:
"I know this is for charity but the sight of these little UPS Pedo St bastards prancing around in traffic pisses me off. Discuss."
"Hey, they're all great causes at heart, but what makes supporting St. Jude's or Thon better than supporting a bigger, and much better (ranked in care and research) hospital in Pittsburgh? Because Jennifer Aniston is their spokesperson? Because some frat brother with a Penn State sweatshirt is knocking on your car window? Hershey isn't even an NCI-designated center.
Why someone would send money to Memphis or support Penn State's faculty recruitment in Hershey over keeping it locally or at their alma mater baffles me. Donate to Thon if you want, but it isn't a smart use of donation dollars."
"wow I am going to print this and hand it to thonsters in lieu of cash.It is devastating in its implications.Really just funcding Pedo St faculty. God only knows how much cash is skimmed by these little punks before it makes it to the Thon fund at large."
"The PSU Thon Turds were set up in Clarion on Saturday panhandling. I couldn't believe it."
"The Thon is just another part of the Grand Illusion that has been exposed. Even the worst charitable organizations help kids, like ah the Second Mile....."
