PSOC is a relatively new organization in THON, starting in 2011. Each year our org is rapidly growing and now has over 40 participants, but still has a very family like feel. In the first year our org was paired with the Tawny Fultz family, and in the second year we were able to have two of our own members stand for 46 hours FTK! We’re very excited to see our members, contribution to the Four Diamonds Fund, and impact on THON grow each year.
PSOC FTK is a happy, hilarious, & dedicated group. You may recognize us as the group that looks absolutely crazy and dances constantly during canning weekends rain or shine, the group that wears hiking boots and backpacks during the THON FT5K, or the group that spells PSOC, COPS, or SOUP during THON weekend with our giant cut out letters! Each year we get together with our THON child, Tawny, before Christmas break for a Classy Christmas Gala where we dress up (or wear an ugly Christmas sweater!) and bond over food that everyone brings.
In 2011 PSOC was paired with the Tawny Fultz Family. Tawny has been attending THON since 2003 after being diagnosed with cancer when she was 16 years. Thankfully, Tawny has been cancer free for almost a decade! Tawny and her brother Jake often visit for THON events, and of course still attend THON every year. Tawny has been a source of inspiration for us, and we are incredibly blessed that we could be paired with her the first year PSOC began raising money for THON. She has been an important part of growing PSOC FTK and we are excited to be spending our third THON with her and Jake!
