Cougarthon 2013

It’s almost time for the sixth annual Cougarthon, UH's traditional dance marathon. The event is one of the 140+ dance marathons held at colleges, universities, and high schools every year in the U.S., and is organized by Dance On, a student-run philanthropic organization on campus.

Dance On hosts a number of events throughout the semester in addition to the February dance marathon, including special performances by musical guests, dancers, and other acts as well as speaking engagements with doctors and former patients of Texas Children’s Hospital.

The Cougarthon is scheduled to be a 9 hour dance marathon that will take place in the UH University Center on February 9th, 2013. All proceeds raised from the event are destined to local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and Texas Children’s Hospital.

The UH Digital Library has many images of dances held throughout the years. The following images of previous dance marathons and students on the dance floor can be found in the Houstonian Yearbook Collection.
