Alpha Phi Omega’s THON child, Haley:
THON 2006. This picture is of the APO dancer’s with our THON child, Haley. This was Haley’s first THON and we did everything we could to make this a really exciting THON for her. What people don’t necessarily realize about THON is that this is a vacation for these kids. They come down to PSU and spend the weekend playing games, visiting with their THON organizations, meeting the PSU athletes, the Nittany Lion, and basically having a great time. They get to forget about cancer and treatments for a weekend and just be kids. And it is so special to get to know these amazing kids. We called ourselves Haley’s Heroes that year, but really, she is our hero.
