Penn State Thon raises $10million today!

Another great year, even as they transition away from canning (I miss talking to the kids who are out canning, but there have been accidents with so many new young drivers going out on the road, so they decided it wasn't worth the risk)

The other cool think I saw was in searching Twitter for FTK (For the Kids, a Thon motto) was how many other colleges are tweeting #FTK. Hey! That's ours!! But really, the whole Thon idea has spread, and it's wonderful. During the PSU Dance Marathon, evidently they conduct tours for representatives from other schools who want to replicate the idea. Saw a video from UConn, and it really caught on there. How cool would it be if other schools could actually top Penn State's totals, and some day NO family in ANY state who had a kid stricken with cancer would have to pay a single penny for their care or for getting the kids to treatment? http://www.collegemagazine.com/top-1...nce-marathons/
