Countdown to THON: 3 Days!!!

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.
