Claysburg, Blair County, Pa- It’s the perfect time of the year to hit the slopes, and a local ski resort hopes it stays this way for a special event Friday. That’s when they’ll be giving part of their profits to Penn State’s THON.
For the second year in a row Blue Knob All Seasons Resort feels it’s a “no-brainer” to support THON. Blue Knob’s slopes will be open for all leves of skiers and snowboarders looking to support the cause.
Here are the details:
This Friday, Jan. 14, every lift ticket sold at Blue Knob will result in $2 going towards PSU’s THON.
THON is a 46-hour, no sleeping, no sitting marathon that raises money for the 4-Diamonds Fund, which supports research and care for child cancer patients.
Blue Knob says this is a cause that’s hard not to back.
“Well I don’t think that there’s anybody that doesn’t want to end childhood cancer,” said Donna Himes, Marketing Director for Blue Knob All Seasons Resort.
There are multiple sessions to make sure everyone will have the chance to participate including a twilight session you can catch from 1:00pm-10:00pm.
“You can still get that twilight ticket and still get a lot of skiing in, even if it’s after school or after work. So we’re just hoping that everyone will take advantage of it,” Himes said.
The day session for skiing and snowboarding runs from 9:00am-6:00pm.
