Read about last year's Cycle-Thon & 5K
Cycle-Thon is more than just a bike ride - it's a fundraiser for an important College of Education program - SCOPE. SCOPE provides access to the field of education by bringing selected high school students (first-generation and/or economically disadvantaged) to Penn State for a rigorous summer residential program. During their time as a SCOPE student, these young adults improve their study skills, learn about the college admission and financial aid process, and address areas including leadership, community service, cultural-affirmation, and personal development all while in a nurturing environment.
When you participate in Cycle-Thon, you're helping to put a very valuable opportunity within young adults reach--the opportunity for a higher education.
