Penn State’s THON is just around corner and runners from The Hope Express are gearing up to bridge the gap between the families on the 7th floor of the Hershey Medical Center and the dancers at THON. The Hope Express is a 135-mile run created to raise awareness of the Four Diamonds Fund in every community through which they travel. The runners carry a magic pouch filled with love and inspiration from the children in the hospital.
The Hope Express will start at the Hershey Medical Center at 5:00 pm on Thursday, February 20 and end at the Bryce Jordan Center on Friday, February 21 just in time for THON. The Hope Express would like to have the campus packed with supporters as they run their last mile from the Nittany Lion Inn to the BJC around 5:00 pm.
