And I want to re-post this thread which links to a THON documentary. It's definitely worth watching if you haven't seen it already (or even if you have):

I'm so glad they kept the IFC/ Panhellenic title with THON because there was talk of getting rid of it.

The THON family lost one of its kids this morning. What an awful thing to have to deal with on Christmas morning. RIP Laney.

I didn't realize this until I read about it today but, this is the same young woman who there was a viral FB post about sending carolers to her home to sing Christmas carols to. So sad. May she rest in peace.

THON is now underway!

What THON means to a 29-year-old cancer survivor:

http://onwardstate.com/2014/02/21/wh...ncer-survivor/

Quote:
I dont know if things happen for a reason and I dont know if there was one for me getting sick. I know that things sometimes happen and there isnt anything we can do about it. But there is a small part of me that is almost grateful for the experience because that cancer of mine opened my eyes to things that I never thought possible. It showed me that its possible to feel love in a matter of seconds. It showed me that there are thousands upon thousands of people that are willing to do everything they can to fight for a cure. It showed me that no matter what, people will always be there. It showed me THON.

Kappa Kappa Gamma and Delta Chi plan to stay for the entire 46 hours:

http://onwardstate.com/2014/02/21/sp...and-delta-chi/

Quote:
Founded in 2006, this fraternity-sorority pair can be found at #THON14 dominating the seats of Section 112, as their bright blue shirts and loud chants make them hard to miss for anyone in the building.

Its been a long day for their members so far many of them started in line outside of the BJC at 7 a.m. this morning to secure a their section in the stands for the weekend. They dont seem to have intentions of letting up either, as they plan to stay at least 50 members strong all weekend, with many of them planning to go the distance.

A lot of us are trying to stay all 46 hours, said Kappa Kappa Gamma sister Alyssa Randzio.

We kill it, said Jordyn Jagolinzer, another Kappa Kappa Gamma sister. Weve been really energetic for the entire time. Everything we do, we do it For The Kids.
