LOOK: Penn State Football To Wear ‘THON’ Sticker On Helmet


The Penn State football team will be wearing some helmet stickers for a special cause on Saturday, November 10 when the No. 20 Nittany Lions face off against the Wisconsin Badgers. Penn State revealed they would be wearing “THON” helmet stickers for their annual THON Game.

THON is a drive at Penn State that helps combat childhood cancer.

“I met with some of the people upstairs in the football building and we got a letter together and sent it over to [Deputy Athletic Director] Phil [Esten] and [Athletic Director] Sandy [Barbour],” Penn State offensive tackle Charlie Shuman said, via the Daily Collegian. “They were extremely supportive knowing it was coming from a student-athlete and how much Penn State’s involved with THON and how much THON means to us. They were very supportive right off the bat for it.”

“At the end of the day, we’re going to play a football game on Saturday, but it’s exciting to have all the THON families and to have THON on a national stage while we play Wisconsin,” Shuman added.

Kickoff between the Nittany Lions and Badgers at Beaver Stadium is set for 12:00 p.m. ET on ABC.

What is THON?

THON is a student-run philanthropy committed to enhancing the lives of children and families impacted by childhood cancer. Our mission is to provide emotional and financial support, spread awareness and ensure funding for critical research – all in pursuit of a cure.
