DanceBlue is an entirely student-run organization that fundraises year-round for the DanceBlue Hematology/Oncology Clinic and culminates in a 24-hour no sitting, no sleeping dance marathon.

Where We Came From

DanceBlue’s mission is to honor Jarrett Mynear’s final request: “do something to help the Clinic.” As a student-run philanthropy at the University of Kentucky, DanceBlue raises funds and awareness for the fight against pediatric cancer while supporting patients and families affected by it. Funds raised by DanceBlue support the DanceBlue Hematology/Oncology Clinic at Kentucky Children’s Hospital.

Where We Are Going

To create an inclusive organization–engaging and unifying University of Kentucky students and the greater community–that fuels the fight against pediatric cancer through Clinic improvements, groundbreaking research, and emotional/financial patient support. DanceBlue will continue to spread joy to those fighting, to persevere in memory of the lives lost, and to celebrate every victory until the battle against pediatric cancer is won.
