The Penn State sailing club has 5 dancing members in THON this year.
Besides, the 2 dancers that are allotted, there are 2 members that would dance independently and one will dance using his group. The sailing club’s THON chairs, Erin Dinyon said the other extra dancers motivated her to take part in THON in this season. It is quite motivating to see 5 members dancing there who are known to Dinyon. There are around 65 members of club sailing which is not the higher group of students on campus. There is no provision for assigning shifts for club members to be present at THON as it does not have adequate number of students.
The president of the club Kristen Einthoven said that by not assigning such shifts only proves advantageous as there is no compulsion for anyone to be present. The president said that it means a lot for him and his entire team to show up there as they really care and not simply because they have to show their presence. They like being there to cheer and support the dancers. In addition, Einthoven also specified that the idea to take part in THON is not just for the dancers of the club, but also for one of the late mothers of her close friend who died of cancer.
Sarah Ross is the club’s alumna who completed her graduation in international politics in December. She was back this year to take part in THON as her roommates belonged to the dancer group of sailors. Both her roommates are named as Sarah and one is the official member while the other one is the independent dancer. There is no denying that they have worked really hard for it as per Sarah Ross. She is indeed proud of them. It is an inspiration for the entire nation to see such people taking part for a good cause.
