Chanice Britten, a student assistant at the Penn State DuBois Library, was one of three dancers representing the DuBois campus and one of the more than 700 dancers selected to participate in THON 2017. The University-wide THON total raised was $10,045,478.44 with the DuBois THON committee contributing a record total $27,616.47 to rank ninth among the Commonwealth Campuses.
“I will never forget my experience with THON weekend,” Britten said in a Penn State DuBois news article. “THON has forever changed my life. I met families who have had cancer impact them. I did this for my grandma, and for a friend who passed away in December from cancer. I encourage anyone to try and be a dancer, you will not regret it, and I would do it again in a heartbeat. I am overwhelmed with love and support from this weekend. As always, FTK and Kayla.”
