Celebrate 100 Days ‘Til THON 2018

As midterms come to a close and Thanksgiving break draws near, you may be too busy to notice how quickly the year is passing. In fact, Wednesday, November 8 marks just 100 more days until thousands of student volunteers will flood the Bryce Jordan Center for THON 2018.

The event will take place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the first and ground floors of the HUB as well as on Old Main Lawn. Attendees can expect an assortment of fun events, alternative fundraisers, and student performances.

This year, THON is launching the “One Day We Will Dance In Celebration” campaign throughout the week leading up to the official 100 Days ‘Til THON Celebration. Fundraising under the new campaign will begin at 12 a.m. tomorrow and conclude at noon on November 8. The organization that raises the most funds throughout the week will have the unique opportunity to participate in the total reveal on Old Main Lawn next Wednesday. THON aims to raise $100,000 through the campaign.

Here’s the lineup of events for 100 Days ‘Til THON:

  • 11:00 a.m.: Official event start time in the HUB
