CV THON 3 Days Away!

Cumberland Valley HS’s THON is only three days away. As I mentioned before, this THON is like it’s (much) larger sibling at Penn State, raising money for the Four Diamond Fund and their fight against Pediatric Cancer.

Take the time to learn about the wide range of activities they have planned at the CV THON by visiting their site at and then watch the video of last year’s LINE DANCE at CV THON!

As you may have read Penn State’s THON was another ringing success, raising over $7.8 million in funds (and increasing the awareness) for the fight against pediatric cancer.  As I mentioned before, the funds raised go the Four Diamonds Fund which has, as it’s mission:

…to conquer childhood cancer by assisting children treated at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital and their families through superior care, comprehensive support, and innovative research.

Any family with a child being treated for pediatric cancer at Penn StateHershey Children’s Hospital is automatically eligible for support.

But wait-there’s MORE!

Cumberland Valley High School has their THON Dance Marathon this coming weekend.  High school kids couldn’t sit by and watch Penn State students raise all the funds.  They too were moved to help in the fight against childhood cancer.  They too wanted to contribute in not only money, but time and passion.  They too wanted to dance to victory over Pediatric Cancer.

So they will have their THON dance, February 27th-28th, 2010.  Learn more about CV Thon here.  Or see pictures from last year’s CV THON.

You can support CV THON by donating directly to the Four Diamonds Fund.  Just visit their site at:

Oh, and watch these videos.

I finally received my Kodak Zi8 HD Pocket Video Camera (Target had them in stock, and on sale! Go Target!)  I really am enjoying it, and I am even “digging” the Raspberry color. Matt and I had a chat in the car while waiting for his Mom to join us for lunch.  We were talking about his iPhone which has  lived a good, but HARD life. And we chatted about it… on the zi8.

The 2009 Water Polo End of Season Slideshow

The season is over, and the girls and the boys teams both placed 3rd in the state-wide tournaments.  While the boys would have liked to have had a repeat of the Championship from last year, they know they played hard, and had a great season.

As usual, I put the slideshow together for them.  I have had a few requests to make the slideshow available for others to watch, so here it is.
