Intern Tim: Thon 2012

23 Feb, 2012  |  Written by  |  under Uncategorized

 

This past weekend I was proud to be involved in the largest student-run philanthropy in the world called THON. Intern Profits allowed me to participate and donate my time to this worthy cause. My fellow classmates at Penn State danced for 46 hours straight and raised over 10.6 million dollars! Yes it was over 10.6 million dollars to help bring awareness and help find a cure for pediatric cancer.   The event had over 15,000 student volunteers and 700 dancers. The 46-hour dance marathon was filled with music, talent shows, fashion shows and various games.  It was very gratifying and a very emotional time for all of us here at Penn State.  We felt a great sense of pride for helping these young cancer victims and making a difference in their lives.  Thru my virtual internship I was able to attend THON and work on my internship during breaks.  I am grateful to have  been selected for an internship at Intern Profits and the opportunity during my senior year to participate in this record-breaking fundraiser called THON. It will be a lasting memory for me.
