Ok, so these two videos require a bit of back-story so you know what's going on. Every year, Penn State holds THON, a 46 hour no-sitting-no-sleeping dance marathon, that is the culmination of a year's worth of work to raise money to help kids with pediatric cancer. THON 2013 ended at 4pm today, and was more magical than anything else I've ever experienced. Though not in the same vein as most of the magic on here, I believe that this is true magic. This is 15,000ish Penn State Students coming together for 46 hours to dance and support kids with cancer, and their families. I've always felt that at Theory11 magic is about bringing wonder and joy to people's lives, and to me, THON is the embodiment of that goal.
