Registration for Last Bag Standing has already ended, but students are welcome to attend. This will be a fun and exciting event with music and food. There is no spectator fee and guests are welcome to pay $5 for all-you-can-eat Papa John’s pizza.

DanceBlue is a year-long, student-run fundraiser which culminates in an annual 24-hour dance marathon. Only 10 years young, it has raised over $8 million, with $1,615,057.18 raised in 2015 alone. The organization enhances the lives of children and families fighting childhood cancer through the Golden Matrix Fund, and therefore serves the Bluegrass by assisting those treated at the DanceBlue Clinic. Please contact the overall chair for DanceBlue, Erica Shipley, for any questions.
