LEXINGTON, Ky. (Feb. 22, 2023) — DanceBlue is excited to introduce a new annual fundraising event, "Big Fund Day," as the last large fundraising push before the 2023 dance marathon. Hosted by the DanceBlue committee, this online fundraiser will take place 7 a.m.-6 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 26. 

“We are so excited to introduce this new fundraising event! It will be a great day to bring our committee together and we are hopeful that Big Fund Day will become an annual DanceBlue fundraising tradition to help increase fundraising before the marathon,” said Lauren Grant, DanceBlue community relations chair. 

DanceBlue is a student-led organization that fundraises year-round in support of the DanceBlue Kentucky Children’s Hospital Hematology/Oncology Clinic. To round out fundraising efforts, students and DanceBlue committee members gather for the annual DanceBlue marathon each spring, where they dance and stand for 24 hours in support of clinic patients.
