    THON 2017 is right around the corner and while we all wish we could be at the Bryce Jordan Center February 17-19, we can still be there in spirit through their LIVE streaming feature! Starting Friday at 5:00pm(CT) and lasting until Sunday at 3:00pm(CT) you and your family are able to witness all of the excitement happening in Happy Valley from the comfort of your own couch! 
     
    Did you know?

    • The Nashville Penn Staters raised more than $300 over the course of the year for THON and the Four Diamonds--WAY TO GO!
    • As a group, we were able to create and send over 200 pieces of "dancer mail" to be delivered during mail call on THON weekend! 
    • Over 700 Penn State students are recognized as "Dancers" during #THON weekend.
    • THON was first organized in 1973 by a group of students looking to add excitement to a dreary February in central Pennsylvania, and for a way to give back to the community.
    • Lasting 46 hours, THON is the longest dance marathon in the U.S.
    • The THON community raised over $9 million dollars last year.

    If you are interested in LIVE streaming the excitement you can do so at http://thon.org/webcast during Friday, February 19 until Sunday, February 19. For all that are still interested we will still sell THON bracelets throughout the year via our online THON store (www.nashvillepennstaters.com/shop). Also, we encourage our members to contribute to the 2017 THON final total by donating at http://donate.thon.org/
