6 Ways To Get Ready For HuskyTHON

HuskyTHON is UCONN's own 18 hour dance marathon that is totally FTK! That's "For the Kids," and the philanthropy goes towards the Connecticut Medical Children's Hospital. Here are 6 ways to get ready for a night of HuskyTHON.
  1. Fundraise!

The only way to be able to participate at HuskyTHON is to raise $100 by February 15. So put on your game face on and raise that money!

 2. Gather up your theme clothes



Theme clothes are a fun way to get an even better experience at HuskyTHON.  Have fun with it! It’s for the kids.

Here’s this year’s:

  • 7:00pm-9:00pm: Husky Pride
  • 9:00pm-11:00pm: Decades
  • 11:00pm-1:00am: PJs
  • 1:00am-3:00am: Rave
  • 3:00am-5:00am: Rep your HuskyTHON team
  • 5:00am-7:00am: Superheros
  • 7:00am-9:00am: Dress as your favorite holiday
  • 9:00am-11:00am: Dress as what you want to be (when you grow up)
  • 11:00am-12:00pm: FTK and Miracle wear (aka HuskyTHON shirts)

 3. Dance (a little)

You’ll be dancing for 18-hours. Get some prep in by dancing during the weeks leading up to HuskyTHON. For one, you will feel more ready to dance for 18-hours and two, you will be able to perfect those moves of yours.

 4. Bring water!

This is a dance marathon. You are going to need to stay hydrated so grab that cute water bottle of yours. It’s no fun to be dehydrated so drink at least a water bottle full an hour. Your body will thank you!

  5. Grab your comfy clothes

This is not the time to be worrying about how you look. Dancing for a long time, you’re going to want to be in clothes that let you move. Now get those yoga pants and UConn shirt on and dance for the kids!

 6. Put on those running shoes

Get your best pair of Nikes on! You’ll be on your feet for 18-hours so to keep your feet happy by making sure your shoes are comfortable with lots of support. Otherwise, you’ll spend the rest of the week soaking your feet and regretting not wearing good shoes.
