DanceBlue is a student-run philanthropy at the University of Kentucky. It is a year-long fundraising effort involving thousands of UK students, which culminates in a 24-hour no-sitting, no-sleeping dance marathon on UK's campus. All of the money raised by DanceBlue goes to the Golden Matrix Fund. DanceBlue has been active for over seven years, raising more than 3 million dollars for the DanceBlue Kentucky Children's Hospital Pediatric Oncology/Hematology Clinic and Markey Cancer Center.
Kentucky-based country, rock and R&B band 64West (ww.sixtyfourwest.com) will perform.
