Representing a variety of organizations across the UConn campus, thousands of students will gather in Hugh S. Greer Field House at 6 p.m. on Saturday, February 18 for an 18-hour weekend-long dance marathon. All year, students have joined teams and organized fundraisers to help raise money for the children and families at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center. This marathon serves as the apex for the year’s worth of student-run fundraisers by HuskyTHON.
Students have the option to become a dancer, morale captain, or volunteer for the event. For the people who can’t constantly dance through the night, a “Morale Corner” is set up where the morale captains will be teaching a dance to exhausted students and trying to keep them energized throughout the night.
