THON Family Carnival 2012

On Sunday we attended THON Family Carnival – it was so much fun! For those of you not familiar with the Penn State Dance MaraTHON (THON for short) you can read more about it here: http://www.thon.org/About.

THON has events for the kids throughout the school year. September we went to Harvest Day, October was the THON 5K, and this month is Family Carnival. Emily spent the day with her THON family, playing games, laughing, and running around. The carnival always makes us really excited for the upcoming THON weekend in February. You will hear many of the kids say “THON weekend is better than Christmas”. We agree. We can’t put into words what THON weekend is like – it’s magical. You have to experience it to understand. We can’t imagine Emily’s cancer journey without the help and support of THON!
