Alumni Dancer Mail Call

Unable to make it to THON weekend, but still want to get involved? Dancer Mail Call is a great opportunity to show your support for the dancers so they can be there for the kids. This year the THON community is asking all alumni to either mail in or upload mail that will be distributed to dancers throughout the weekend.

Former dancer? Feel free to write a note about your dancing experience in order to inspire those standing up to childhood cancer for 46 hours this year.

For paper copy submissions, you can write messages on construction paper and mail it to the label at the bottom. You can also scan and upload your letter in the dropbox below. Below are some helpful hints for making dancer mail. If you have any questions, please reach out to [email protected].

Hard copy submissions must be received or postmarked before 2/10/2020. Online submissions are due by 2/12/2020.
