“Wow”………...... that is really all I can say right now when thinking back on the incredible experience that is THON. Joining the production committee was easily the best decision I have made in my time here at Penn State. Not only did I get to capture and experience the magic of THON first hand, but I got to do so along side some of the most charitable and talented people I have ever met (shout out my amazing committee and captains for being those people previously described^). Thank you to everyone that participated in this incredible event. This is why we THON —- FTK 💙 #THON #THON2018 #PennState #FTK #ForTheKids #GH5 #DanceMarathon #SlowMotion #PSU #StateCollege #PennStateTHON #Pursuitofacure #Philanthropic #PennStateDanceMarathon

THON 2018, wow.. what an incredible, once in a lifetime experience. where do i even begin? i am extremely honored & humbled to be one of the 707 dancers for this year’s THON. 46 hours of no sitting and no sleeping isn’t an easy task, but it’s easy when you’re on the BJC floor and interact with all of the Four Diamonds families. a year long’s effort to fundraise + 46 hours later, we THON so that these kids can just be kids. we THON for their laughter & smiles and especially for the kids who were unable to make it this weekend. we will continue this fight so that every child can live out his/her childhood and life to the fullest, to discover tomorrow’s wonder. i also want to thank the most amazing and best DRCM ever. thank you for always providing me with my favorite snacks, for keeping me positive and happy, for having to deal with me and for the constant @justinbieber motivation. i honestly could not have made it through 46 without you, Ben! to everyone else who was there for me & provided support, it means the world. thank you penn state for this wonderful community and opportunity to be a part of something larger than ourselves.. One day we will dance in celebration. Until then, we will dance for a cure. #FTK

This event was amazing. Seeing some of my best friends and their friends raise over $202,000 for kids in Children’s Miracle Hospitals and hearing firsthand stories from incredibly courageous families about how precious life is and how many of their lives were forever changed in minutes, was both humbling and inspiring. To the students that dedicated months to fundraising and throwing this event and the families whose lives are consumed with hospital visits and uncertainty, I am beyond grateful for you. Thank you UNL DM for asking me to help with this video and shoutout to @reneelohaus_ for helping me take vids! You can see the whole vid with the link in my bio. #FTK #UNLDM

#WhyIDanceWednesday Charles E. Hayes - Special Education teacher: “I dance to spread Love and Joy. I dance because any chance I get to put a smile on someone’s face or help someone who is going through a rough time, even if just for a couple of seconds, laugh and feel Joy and Happiness, then I was able to pay it forward with dance. I dance because when the beat drops, so do all the burdens of the world. In this moment, God is able to use me to spread his love enjoys to others. I dance because over the last couple months dancing has had a different meaning to me, ever since I found out about the MountaineerTHON and The Children’s Medical Hospital. My dancing now has a greater purpose. My dancing can bring happiness and joy to all those kids who are sick and injured and that right there is enough for me to dance dance and more dance!” A fun fact about Charles is that he has played the tuba since the sixth grade! #WVUDM18 #FTK
