Whiteheads at THON

Kari Whitehead looks on as her daughter, Emily, plays at THON 2014.

Kari Whitehead (in green), a project manager in the Penn State Survey Research Center, looks on as her daughter, Emily, takes aim with a water pistol during THON 2014 at the Bryce Jordan Center on Penn State's University Park campus. When Emily was diagnosed with leukemia in 2010 and relapsed in 2011, Whitehead received support from her co-workers through the Penn State employee vacation donation program.
