Calling All Former THON Dancers: Pay It Forward

With a long and relaxing winter break behind us, THON 2016 is quickly approaching. Many students are working hard in their THON committees and organizations preparing for the big weekend.

For some, however, there’s more to worry about than buying tutus and learning the line dance. With just 24 days remaining until THON, the 2016 dancers are beginning to face reality: soon they will stand for 46 hours straight, without sitting or sleeping. Each dancer has a different plan in terms of preparation, but more advice is always welcomed.

If you’ve danced in THON, we want your advice!

Whether you have advice for getting in shape, good ways to help cut back on alcohol and caffeine, or any other advice to make it through the 46 hours — we want to hear it. Dancing in THON is a unique opportunity not many students have the opportunity to experience. We want to help keep them on their feet and energetic for the entire weekend. So fill out our form and give the new dancers some advice!

We look forward to sharing your insightful tips and tricks. With your help, the 2016 THON dancers will hit the ground running dancing.
