UK’s DanceBlue event raises $1.785 million to fight pediatric cancer


The numbers are officially in! University of Kentucky’s annual DanceBlue event brought in a whopping $1,785,286.96 to fight pediatric cancer!

The 24-hour dance marathon began yesterday at 8:00 p.m., and finished in dramatic fashion when the final total came through.

DanceBlue is the largest philanthropy event at UK, where hundreds of students gathered at Memorial Coliseum and danced the day and night away for an unbelievable cause.

Check out some moments from the event:

Thank you to all who participated and/or donated to the cause. Your efforts are more appreciated than you realize.

    Kudos to UofL students as well – their version of this event, RaiseRED, exceeded their fundraising goal as well (for the fourth consecutive year). They brought in $459,402 for pediatric cancer research at UofL.

    Oh, and this is one area in which there is no rivalry:

    Hard to find a better cause out there. A huge round of applause for everyone involved, and you’re right, wesmorgan1, kudos to those UofL students as well! You can’t go wrong by raising money for kids with cancer. #FTK
