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.

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. Morale Captains 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). Morale Captains 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 the night of, and will contribute to the overall good spirit and morale.

Our Morale Captains 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. Morale Captains are also responsible for fundraising a minimum of $850, but we encourage much more than that. Most importantly, Morale Captains are the energy that encompasses what it means to be a part of HuskyTHON!

Congratulations to our 2023 Morale Captains!
