DanceBlue is a registered student organization at the University of Kentucky that works tirelessly all year, every year, to raise money FTK (For The Kids)! The money raised through DanceBlue fundraising efforts 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.
Fundraising efforts are taken on by both the student organization itself, in the form of mini marathons, restaurant nights and events like this 5K run/walk, as well as the UK students who are hopeful participants in our grand finale event each year – the DanceBlue Marathon. The DanceBlue Marathon is a 24 hour, no sitting, no sleeping, dance marathon in which students can participate by raising money on their own For The Kids.
This event, the 2021 DanceBlue FT5K, will be hosted on campus, but we are also offering a Virtual DanceBlue FT5K option for those that can't join us in person.
More details about packet pick up/shipping will be available after registration opens.
If you are a student at the University of Kentucky you must be in good standing with University policy and compliance in order to participate. No refunds available.
