CV THON Feb 27-28th FOR THE KIDS
As you have read here Penn State’s THON was another ringing success, raising over $7.8 million in funds (and increasing the awareness) for the fight against pediatric cancer. Â As I mentioned before, the funds raised go theÂ Four Diamonds Fund which has, as it’s mission:
…to conquer childhood cancer by assisting children treated atÂ Penn StateÂ HersheyÂ Children’s Hospital and their families through superior care, comprehensive support, and innovative research.
Any family with a childÂ beingÂ treated for pediatric cancer at Penn StateHersheyÂ Children’s HospitalÂ is automatically eligible for support.
But wait-there’s MORE!
Cumberland Valley High School has their THON Dance Marathon this coming weekend. Â High school kids couldn’t sit by and watch Penn State students raise all the funds. Â They too were moved to help in the fight against childhood cancer. Â They too wanted to contribute in not only money, but time and passion. Â They too wanted to dance to victory over Pediatric Cancer.
So they will have their THON dance, February 27th-28th, 2010. Â Learn more about CV ThonÂ here. Â Or seeÂ pictures from last year’s CV THON.

It sure feel great to contribute in not only money, but time and passion. Good luck kids!
