Every year, THON brings out the best colorful tutus, socks, hairstyles and most importantlyâ€”fanny packs. Valley decided to get the inside scoop on whats in some of the dancers’ fanny packs this year.
Megan Glover, a senior dancing for the Society of Women Engineers, had a fanny pack full of surprises. When asked what she reached for most in her pack, she laughed.
“I have a kazoo in here,” says Glover, as she pulls out a bright green and yellow kazoo.
“I also have some pop rocks, a portable charger and oh, these glasses,” Glover laughs as she whips out crazy, hippy glasses. What she took out of her fanny pack next was a blast from the past.
“I brought my Nintendo D.C., because he is my guy friend here,” says Glover.
A bright purple fanny pack covered in sparkles caught Valley’s eye, belonging to dancer Brooke Cichocki, dancing for the Encore School of Music. Cichocki, a sophomore, had a variety of random essentials in her pack. Along with her phone, a portable charger and some gum, she had some balloons, gel pens and the 20-questions game.
“It’s got everything,” says Cichocki.
Lastly, Valley decided to interview John Mcdowell, a super-senior dancing for Science Lion Prime. His white fanny pack covered in various THON stickers was basically filled with one thingâ€”gel pens.
“I have to have my gel pens,” says Mcdowell.
Along with his multicolored pens, he pulled out a blue, light up ring, some more stickers and pictures of funny memes.
“My sister printed me out a bunch of pictures of memes, so I can look at them when I am starting to get tired,” Mcdowell says with a smile.
Each and every dancer had a fanny pack that represented their own style and most importantly, why they THON. FTK!
