The Best THON 2016 Organization Shirts

Year after year there are more than one hundred organizations that raise money for THON and dedicate time to attend THON to support their dancers. Walking around you can see the array of colors splattering the floor and concourse of the BJC. Here is an up close look at some of the coolest shirts for some THON organizations.

Ohana means family, and the members of the organization sport their matching shirts with pride. The orange and baby blue Hawaiian flower on the back was bound to catch attention. It sure caught ours.

Tetra shows off their strength with their Titan graphic and “No-sit, No-sleep, No-problem” mantra on the back. They all looked #TitanTough in blue and black.

The galaxy themed Boulevard shirts are only accented by the organization’s boundless enthusiasm, and cosmic leggings.

The Blue and White society shows off the classic Four Diamonds graphic. These two members represent the organization well with neon green and teal accessories. They were truly decked out for THON.

This Apollo member rocks the space shuttle graphic that compliments the Believe Beyond Boundaries theme for this year’s THON. These shirts are fit for a THON organization as committed as Apollo.

Members of A7 wear shirts that play off the classic Superman symbol. The back states “For Our Superheroes,” and it works perfectly with their strong THON presence. The yellow graphic is hard to miss. Can you spot them?

This handful of Atlas members show off multiple designs from their organization’s shirts. The unifying theme is the forest green and crisp white graphics, even though these shirts are from the THON 2014, 2015, and 2016. Dedication at its finest.

It’s a bit of a shameless plug, but we love our custom THONward State shirts.
