is a year long fundraising effort at the University of Connecticut that raises funds for Connecticut Children's Medical Center. We celebrate the year with an eighteen hour dance marathon over the course of a weekend with the HuskyTHON children. Connecticut Children's Medical Center is a nationally recognized, non-profit children's hospital and serves as the primary teaching hospital for UConn's School of Medicine. From cancer to a traumatic injury or a genetic disease, Connecticut Children's always has their doors open and never turns a family away. HuskyTHON 2016 was incredibly successful, with $716,394.58 raised. But, Connecticut Children's Medical Center needs help from the community in order to continue their mission of giving kids the care they deserve. The money raised by HuskyTHON truly helps to make a difference.
