Penn State Football: Nittany Lions Make-A-Wish Come True On THON Weekend
Nearly 40 families and Make-A-Wish children took a tour of the Lasch Football Building Saturday afternoon guided by members of the Penn State football team.
The event was just one part of THON weekend as the dance marathon continued across the street at the Bryce Jordan Center.
"It's just a great event to be a part of," senior guard Miles Dieffenbach said afterwards. "You build a relationship with these kids and families over the years and see them grow up. It's really a special thing to be apart of."
Many of the Nittany Lions will be a part of a pep rally held Saturday night at the Bryce Jordan Center. Head coach James Franklin won't be in attendance, but men's basketball head coach Patrick Chambers will act as a master of ceremonies for the event which features many Penn State athletic groups taking part in dance routines.
Here are photos from Saturday's event showing families visiting with Nittany Lion football players and getting an up close and personal look at Penn State's football program.
