PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Each year, students at Penn State raise millions of dollars to fight childhood cancer by participating in THON weekend. It’s the world’s largest student-run philanthropy.

Now, Penn Staters are getting ready for the 50th anniversary of THON weekend in February and they’re getting some major support from the Flyers.

A portion of tickets sales to Tuesday’s game against the Capitals will go toward THON.
