The Dance Marathon, or THON as it is more commonly called in these parts, raises money to help children and their families fight pediatric cancer.
Each year, kids who have been or are being helped by THON attend the event to lend inspiration to the dancers who participate. And the Lasch get-together, now in its fourth year, is a chance for those kids and their families to take a break from the proceedings at the BJC while getting a true inside look at the storied Nittany Lion football program.
This year more than a dozen kids and their families took the tour. From the locker room (and the legendary "S") to the weight room to Joe Paterno's office and more, they basically had the run of the place.
