ThinkBIG to celebrate at BU game

BLOOMSBURG - Geisinger Janet Weis Children's Hospital's ThinkBIG Pediatric Cancer Fund will celebrate Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month at the Sept. 13 Bloomsburg University football game.

ThinkBIG representatives will be on hand with information about the fund and about pediatric cancer. Representatives will sell T-shirts and hold a raffle for various items before the Huskies take to the field to battle California University of PA.

Kickoff is 2 p.m. ThinkBIG will have its own section in the stands, and Janet Weis Children's Hospital pediatric cancer patients and their families will be invited onto the field after the game to meet the players, toss the ball and meet Roongo, the university mascot.

Information on game tickets can be found at www.buhuskies.com/tickets.

ThinkBIG is a program that aims to offset some stress for pediatric oncology families by providing financial support for unexpected out-of-pocket expenses. Donations and proceeds go directly to help families treated at Janet Weis Children's Hospital and throughout the entire Geisinger network.
