Morale Captain

Morale Captain




HuskyTHON is an ever-expanding philanthropy that has grown and thrived at the University of Connecticut since the very first “Midnight Marathon” held in 2000. 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.

The position of Morale Captain has become increasingly sought after and competitive, and we love that so many amazing students want the chance to be involved. We are looking for some of the most inspirational, enthusiastic, HuskyTHON-obsessed students on campus to be part of our team. This year, one of our main focuses is on cohesiveness and leadership as a team. Our main focus is always on the kids, though.

Overall, Morale is the excitement leading up to and during HuskyTHON. We are the fun, crazy ones that love to stay up for 18 hours dancing and smiling. MCs have to attend mandatory practices to learn the morale dance in the months leading up to HuskyTHON (no judgement zone – we accept all dance moves). MCs then accompany the Management Team in teaching the dance throughout the night. In addition, MCs will help run various games and activities going on the night of, and will contribute to the overall good spirit and morale.

Our MCs are held to the highest standard, with other responsibilities including: tabling, canning, attending a retreat at Connecticut Children’s, fundraising year-round, spreading word about HuskyTHON, and most importantly, keeping the overall community morale high the entire year. MCs are also responsible for fundraising a minimum of $550, but we encourage much more than that. Most importantly, MCs are responsible for having fun For The Kids!

Congratulations to our 2019 Morale Captains!
