Today was THON’s mini carnival, where they announced their dancers for THON 2013! I just wanted to say congratulations to Nick Todorov, Gianna Pacitti, Ciara McCoy & Jeff Wright!!! I’m positive these four individuals will make Abington proud. I am so excited to go to THON, (my first as an alum) and cheer them on.
For those of you who might not know what exactly they will be doing, they will be standing 46 hours, no sitting or sleeping, to celebrate year long fundraising efforts for the four diamonds fund. What does standing for 46 hours have to do with our fundraising you ask? THON weekend is a chance for individuals to get a glimpse of what the children fighting cancer go through. They will have many roller coasters of emotions, and will be in pain here and there. Of course, nothing compares to what these kids are truly fighting, but we want them to know we are there for them and are trying to understand what they are going through. PLUS! It’s a weekend long dance party that the kids and their families get to go to and who doesn’t love to dance?
