HuskyTHON's "For The Kids Dance Challenge" Goes Viral

This past January, HuskyTHON at the University of Connecticut issued a challenge to their campus community to participate in a #ForTheKidsDanceChallenge. To accept the challenge, participants had to post a video of themselves dancing to “Can’t Stop The Feeling” by Justin Timberlake and challenge three friends to do the same. Some students even challenged others to either post a video or donate to their fundraising page.

For The Kids Dance Challenge

We are UConnHuskyTHON and we invite you all to participate in our #ForTheKids #DanceChallenge! Post a video of yourself dancing to "Can't Stop the Feeling" and tag three friends to pass it on. You have 18 hours! HuskyTHON is a yearlong fundraising effort by students at the University of Connecticut which culminates in an eighteen hour dance marathon. Funds raised benefit Connecticut Children's Medical Center through Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
