- And in today's "Something Good," something amazing.

- Despite changes caused by COVID, students at Penn State University raised more than $10 million at this year's THON. Usually THON weekend on campus means lots of dancing in State College. But this year, because of COVID, THON went virtual. And still, thanks to their commitment and dedication to the cause, students raised all that money to help fight childhood cancer.
