Morale


"There is a bit of insanity in dancing that does everybody a great deal of good"
- Edwin Derby

HuskyTHON is an ever expanding philanthropy that has grown and thrived at the University of Connecticut since the very first “Midnight Marathon” held in 1999. Morale, we believe, is an integral and inexplicably important part of the foundation that makes HuskyTHON a continuing success. The Morale Team is made up of a small group of individuals who are considered leaders not only on the night of the event but throughout the entire academic year leading up to it. We expect our morale captains to attend practices to learn the morale dance in the months leading up to HuskyTHON (don't worry we won't judge you on your dancing skills). Morale captains will then accompany the management team in teaching the dance throughout the night. In addition morale captains will help run various games and activities going on each hour, and will contribute to the overall good spirit and morale that, let's face it, we all need reminding of when 4 or 5 am rolls around.

The position of morale captain has become increasingly more sought after and competitive, and we love that so many amazing students want the chance to be involved. That being said, we will be looking for approximately 125 of the most energetic and HuskyTHON obsessed students we can find! These 110 people will be part of a more cohesive unit than they have been in the past, and will be held to a higher standard of responsibility. For example, we will ask morale captains to be more involved in tabling throughout the fall to raise awareness about HuskyTHON, dancer week and Miracle Walk, and Game Nights at Connecticut Children's Medical Center. We also have higher expectations for our morale captains in regards to fundraising, asking that your goal be $300. Overall we want students who will use their love for HuskyTHON to inspire others to dance and raise money not just for 18 hours but for the entire year. If you feel like this describes you, we hope that you consider applying to be a Morale Captain for HuskyTHON 2015! If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Derek Litts or Mackenzie Lowers. We look forward to reading your applications!

FTK,
Derek & Mackenzie
