FTK: now with video!

Penn State students can sometimes embarrass those of us that love dear old State (Ohio State Football tailgate video anyone?) but forget all that for now, this is one time of year that we can all be proud of the immeasurable effort put forth by current Nittany Lion students. Once again the THON participants raised a whopping $6,615,318.04 For The Kids surpassing last year's total of $5.2 million. Not only is that an amazing total for one year but THON has helped raise more than $50 million for pediatric-cancer research and treatment since 1973.

$50 miLLION dollars

If you've not been, and you want to know what it feels like to dance for two days straight and have all your hard work and exhaustion rewarded here's a collection video of the last hour and final total revealed (thank you CDT). If this doesn't bring Goosebumps you're a cold heartless bastard, but I won't hold it against you.
