DanceBlue 5K ---- A Race For The Kids!

Our inaugural race will benefit DanceBlue.  This includes partial proceeds from the race and 100% of donations.

DanceBlue is a University of Kentucky student-run organization that fundraises year-round and culminates in a 24-hour no sitting, no sleeping dance marathon. The money raised through DanceBlue is donated to the Golden Matrix Fund, established to support the kids of the DanceBlue Kentucky Children’s Hospital Hematology/Oncology Clinic both today and well into the future through an endowment. DanceBlue funds also support the year-long fundraising engine and operations that underpin the mission, as well as providing funds to support research at the UK Markey Cancer Center. The Golden Matrix Fund was created to benefit the DanceBlue KCH Hematology/Oncology Clinic patients and families. Childhood cancer not only affects the child physically, but it also creates many emotional and financial difficulties for the entire family. The goal of the Golden Matrix Fund is to provide care and support for the kids through giving them and their parent’s comfort. www.danceblue.org

 In the 2023 Spring semester, the students of Scott County High School and Great Crossing High School will be working alongside each other, in a friendly competition, to add to the cumulative donation to the Golden Matrix Fund from the University of Kentucky. To reach our fundraising goal of $10,000, we are planning several fundraisers in the upcoming months. This includes several events from late January through mid April. The fundraisers will conclude with a 5 hour dance marathon at Great Crossing High School on April 14th, in which all high school students are invited (with exception to a dancer fee.) Our committee’s idea for the 5k was thought to help us reach our fundraising goal faster and begin community involvement for this project. This is our first year of doing a DanceBlue mini-marathon; however, we expect this combined high school mini marathon to be a new tradition for our schools in years to come!
