More About Morale

In a nutshell, morale captains are the heart and soul of DemonTHON! Morale captains are responsible for keeping dancers enthusiastic throughout the entire year and during the Big Event! A morale captain is someone who is personable, outgoing, reliable, creative, energetic, and able to engage with their fellow students and families from Lurie Children’s Hospital. We hold weekly meetings for our morale captains to come together to plan the activities for the Big Event. These meetings allow morale captains to let their creativity shine, while reminding one another that all our work is solely for the kids!

Joining dance marathon as a morale captain presents so many exciting opportunities as a college student. Here are some great benefits to becoming a morale captain:

  • Immersing yourself into the culture of dance marathon is a great way to start off your college career, or a new academic year, with a BIG presence on campus

  • There are many opportunities to establish relationships with numerous peers and faculty!

  • We want to unite a diverse network of students and DePaul community members by giving them one common goal: serving others. This mindset allows us to provide a community of individuals that are passionate about being a part of a cause greater than themselves!

  • Whether it be within the morale captain niche or the various levels of our organization, DemonTHON is filled with motivated, hard-working individuals that care about the greater good. Meeting people and establishing relationships within dance marathon is a one-of-a-kind experience!

  • We help miracle families that have ties to Lurie Children’s Hospital by giving opportunities to share their stories of overcoming hardship while also providing fun activities and events for everyone

  • All money fundraised goes directly to Lurie Children’s hospital, helping to provide new equipment to treat children

Being a morale captain is an awesome opportunity to meet and connect with people with the same goals and aspirations to support the kids, and we are looking for more people to join our morale captain team! If you think you have what it takes to bring the positive and encouraging energy to DemonTHON, email me, Nicole Palumbo, at, and I would be happy to answer any further questions that you may have!
