Following an in-person return for THON 2022, the official date for THON 2023 was revealed on Wednesday.

The weekend-long event will be held in person once again, starting on February 17 and ending on February 19, Thon said in a press release.

Similar to last year’s, the event will be held at the Bryce Jordan Center.

Another thing that will remain the same from last year is that the event will be adjusted to face any COVID-19 protocols that are in effect by THON weekend.

The 2023 fiscal year will begin on July 1, when the fundraising efforts for this year’s event will start.

During THON 2022, a record-breaking total of $13,756,347.50 during its first in-person weekend since the COVID-19 pandemic.

THON has raised over $200 million for childhood cancer research.
