Penn State Dance MaraTHON

I don't think many people here have heard of it (also not many within the States) but I am proud of this event and wanted to share:

This weekend is THON (http://www.thon.org/) at Penn State, it just started about 15 mins ago. It is the largest student run philanthropy in the world and raised almost $10 million last year for pediatric cancer research. College kids stay awake for 46 hours dancing, the kids come, there is music, just a really touching event. So if you are looking for a smile, click through the link and read some of the stories. Also, there are live webcasts, so you might see some dancers looking like zombies by Sunday morning

I can't believe it's been 12 years since I danced
