On February 14, 2013, two Hope teams (Express and Extreme) set out to run from PSU's Hershey Medical Center to the University Park campus, carrying letters on their backs from those kids too sick to attend THON, thanking the dancers for all of their hard work. This experience was even more amazing than last year's experience of being a moraler. The Hope teams BOTH broke previous records for arrival times: the express team ran 135 miles in 20:13 and the extreme team ran 140 miles in 19:59!!!
MORE IMPORTANTLY, we set a new fundraising record! As a team, we raised a total of $94,860 FTK!
AND EVEN MORE AWESOMELY, THON 2013 set a record -- raising a grand total of $12,374
