HuskyTHON | Since 1999

HuskyTHON at the University of Connecticut is currently ranked the fifth-largest dance marathon in the country. Since 1999, HuskyTHON has engaged thousands of UConn students to fundraise for Connecticut Children’s, cumulatively raising over $10 million.

HuskyTHON also engages elementary, middle and high schools across Connecticut and beyond through JonaTHON programs. JonaTHONs are mini-dance marathons sponsored by local schools and benefit HuskyTHON.
