Time to Put Your Running Shoes Away — DanceBlue’s 5K Went Off Without a Hitch

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Oct. 2, 2017) — This past weekend, DanceBlue hosted its annual 5K at Kroger Field. While sweating doesn’t sound like much fun, all of the runners had a great time! All of the proceeds went to benefit the DanceBlue Kentucky Children’s Hospital Hematology/Oncology Clinic.

After the wake of the annual 5K, don’t forget all of the great ways that you can continue to support DanceBlue and its efforts. With DanceBlue, there are a multitude of ways of volunteering and donating "For The Kids!" Visit www.danceblue.org to learn more.

DanceBlue is the University of Kentucky's 24-hour, no sitting, no sleeping dance marathon that benefits the Golden Matrix Fund. The DanceBlue Kentucky Children’s Hospital Hematology/Oncology Clinic opened its brand new facility in 2017 after a complete renovation funded solely from DanceBlue.
