How Long Will You Last At THON?

It goes without saying that there are only few people who have enough patience, talent, and commitment to stand for the entire 46 hours of THON. That’s why they have been elected into the elite class of 2018 dancers.

For those who are regular spectators, the willingness to stand for extended periods can greatly vary. Some may think their legs feel like stone after 4 hours, while others can last till 30 hours until they begin to fall asleep standing up.

For some reason those who stay longer seem to get THON bragging rights. So we’re curious, what section of the crowd do you fall in? Have you given up or are you still going strong and planning to come back? Fill out our survey to let us know!
