Though UConn’s annual HuskyTHON charity event, an 18-hour dance marathon that raises funds for the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, won’t be held until Feb. 16, fundraising and events “For The Kids” are beginning as early as this week’s “Dancer Week.”
“Dancer Week” features a pasta dinner Wednesday at the Hillel Center, located near Towers, from 5 to 9 p.m. Entry is $5, with all proceeds going to HuskyTHON. UConn’s dining services, Angellino’s and Wally’s Chicken Coop will donate food.
Those interested can also donate by getting a treat at Storrs Center’s FroYoWorld on Thursday, where presenting a print-out flyer on HuskyTHON’s website will result in 15 percent of any purchase going to ”For the Kids.”
Friday brings a Baja Café late-night deal, where ordering from 9 p.m. to 12 a.m. will give HuskyTHON 10 percent.
Finally, on Saturday, ZumbaTHON will keep things moving from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the Field House. Hosted by BodyWise, HuskyTHON and UConn Recreation, all proceeds will go to HuskyTHON. Volunteer BodyWise instructors will lead four hours of Zumba; it’s open to the public and anyone 17 and over is welcome. Tickets are $5 online, $10 day-of and check-in will open at 11:30 a.m.
