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.
Over the past few weeks, hundreds of people have participated in the challenge, helping to raise awareness for HuskyTHON and the fundraising they’re doing for Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, the local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.
