THON Dancers: How Was Your Post-THON Sleep?

Congrats, THON dancers, you did it. 46 hours for the kids is an incredible feat of physical, mental and emotional endurance, but it was worth every minute. However, after you left the BJC, I’m willing to bet you had the best sleep of your entire life. As college students, we love sleep more than anyone between the ages of 6 and 60. As nap aficionados, we at Onward State would love to know about your post-THON hibernation. We want to find out just how long the average amount of time each dancer slept, as well as what (if anything) they did before that magical slumber, and just how great said slumber was.

So, submit to the form below by Wednesday night and we might publish your story on post-THON sleep or what you did before, and we’ll post some sleep-based stats as well. You helped raise over $13 million for the kids — you earned yourself that rest. If you can’t submit to the embedded form below, click here.
