This is the second year the Penn State Alumni Association has partnered with THON for the Pep Rally. Last year’s White Out was met with surprise to all of the spectators in the Bryce Jordan Center during the Pep Rally event where the Penn State Alumni Association distributed 12,000 white shirts to those in attendance. THON’s Pep Rally includes multiple performances by Penn State sports teams and last year’s judges including CEO of the Penn State Alumni Association Paul Clifford.

“THON has been part of the Penn State experience for more than 40 years and its impact inspires Penn State alumni. The work of THON volunteers and alumni that support this effort swell thy fame of dear old State, the Alumni Association is proud to partner with THON and play a role in the fight to end childhood cancer.” — Paul J. Clifford, CEO of the Penn State Alumni Association

This year, alumni can show their support from home by purchasing a special anniversary edition of the White Out shirt and tuning into the Pep Rally livestream. Penn State alumni worldwide now total over 700,000 with 2020 marking 150 years since the Penn State Alumni Association was founded.
