TODAY!! 3.10.21 is HuskyTHON’s Day of Strength – during which the UConn students will try to raise $200,000 in 24 hours!!
The pandemic has reminded us how much we need to take care of on another. Over the past year, students at the University of Connecticut have been raising money to support patient care at Connecticut Children's in preparation for their annual HuskyTHON dance marathon. Now more than ever, the kids who are cared for at Connecticut Children’s need your help. It's really easy to support HuskyTHON and make a difference in a sick child’s life. Just text "UCONN” to 51555, to ensure every child in Connecticut gets the best health care possible.
HuskyTHON is a year-long fundraising drive at UConn to raise funds and awareness for Connecticut Children’s, a Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. This effort culminates in an 18-hour dance marathon in March, where thousands of UConn students come together to dance for those who can’t. HuskyTHON is entirely student-run and its Management Team of 30 undergraduate student leaders works tirelessly to make each HuskyTHON better than the last.
In two decades, HuskyTHON has grown to become the largest event in support of Connecticut Children’s. In 2020 they raised an astounding $1,520,234.98, and while UConn students are proud of this accomplishment, they are not stopping there. Their motto is “FTK” (For The Kids).
Since we are not able to gather in person, this year HuskyTHON will host a live stream on Saturday, March 20 and Sunday, March 21. To learn more, check out @huskython on social media or go to huskython.org.
