Since 1974, Dance-a-thon has been and continues to be one of Junior Civitan's top annual fundraising events. Any Junior Civitan who raises enough support can participate in the 12-hour dance marathon to raise funds for the Civitan International Foundation, and its flagship project, the UAB Civitan International Research Center. This event raises approximately $40,000 each year and has raised over $1.1 million since its inception.
