STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Every year, Penn State’s football team hosts a Make-A-Wish event in the football building, where about 30 families will descend to chat with the players and tour the facilities.

The event is part of THON weekend, which is an annual 46-hour dance marathon that raises money to fight pediatric cancer. More than $13 million was raised this year alone.

Here’s a look, through the eyes of Twitter, of the Make-A-Wish event and the football team’s participation in THON this past weekend:
