DanceBlue, the annual 24-hour dance marathon that is held every year at Memorial Coliseum, took place this weekend and was once again an incredible event for the students of Kentucky. The event is now going eleven years strong and so far has raised over 9.8 million dollars for children with pediatric cancer. Well now you can increase that figure by another million because the 2016 edition was an amazing success:
$1,631,067.49 ALL FOR THE KIDS! CONGRATULATIONS #DB16!

All of the money that is raised through DanceBlue is donated to the Golden Matrix Fund, which then works to support the kids of the DanceBlue Kentucky Children’s Hospital Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Clinic, as well as research done at the Markey Cancer Center.
