Baila Bella

Tonight's blog post is a shout out to my (other) amazing sister, Bella.  This girl is in every sense of the word awesome.  In her year-and-a-half stint in college so far, she has already accomplished so much.  Tonight I'd like to shout her out for her recent accomplishment of being selected to dance in Penn State's Dance Marathon.  If you haven't already heard, THON is a 46-hour no sleep, no sit dance marathon that concludes the fundraising "year."  Funds are collected throughout THON weekend, as well as the year prior to donate to Hershey Medical Center to help fund pediatric cancer research and treatment.  Bella dedicated so much time, effort, energy, and spirit to the cause that she was selected to be a dancer for 2012.  You might think she's crazy, but it is an honor to be selected, and such a feeling of worth and community to be a part of such a great cause.  This years' THON weekend is February 17-19 at Penn State's main campus.  Nothing says it better than this:

If you'd like more information on how to get involved, donate, or what the cause is about, visit THON on the web.  In the meantime, I'm super proud of you Bilo & can't wait to cheer you on, pick you up, and maybe even give you a little foot massage or two..... We'll see :)
