When you become a Terp Thon dancer, you join a movement. You join hundreds of other University of Maryland students, as well as students around the nation, who dedicate themselves to fighting for the next generation. You become the catalyst of change in the world. You become the difference in a child’s life.

When you become a Terp Thon dancer, you also join a lifelong family. You become a part of a community of thousands of Terp Thon’s past and present participants. You become a part of a legacy at the University of Maryland that promotes empowerment, passion, and care. You will stand alongside 2,000+ other students for 12 hours, and share an experience that will transform each and every one of you.
