What is Dance-a-thon?
Since 1974, Junior Civitans around the world have raised over $1.1 million for the UAB Civitan International Research Center through Dance-a-thon. Traditionally, Dance-a-thon is held at the Junior Civitan International Convention. However, with the recent COVID-19 pandemic, the Civitan International Board voted to forego this year’s convention.

Have you heard about this year’s Dance-a-thon? While it’s true that we cannot hold it in person due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this has not diminished our enthusiasm and we are proud to announce the 2020 Dance-a-thon Virtual Prom, which will be held on June 26th from 6:00-8:00PM. Dancers must still raise at least $50 to participate, and we’re excited this virtual format will allow more dancers from across Junior Civitan to join in on supporting such an amazing cause. The researchers at the Civitan International Research Center continue to work hard on the front lines, and we fully believe in our responsibility to continue to support each of them and the incredible work they are doing. Please consider supporting us as we look to make this the most successful Dance-a-thon ever!
