THON 2024 captain applications are now open for active THON committee members.

All completed applications must be submitted by 5 p.m. on Thursday, August 24. Folks can begin applications and submit them here.

THON captains help lead the THON community and assist in planning and executing fundraising events throughout the year. There are 16 committees within THON that applicants can captain, including communications, dancer relations, merchandise, finance, and more. Descriptions of each committee can be found here.

THON 2024’s fundraising window began on July 1 and kicked off its third annual “Ignite the Fight” campaign. THON Weekend is slated for February 16 to 18
