Join Sigma Alpha in supporting the kids through the DanceBlue-Golden Matrix Fund!
Sigma Alpha 2017 DanceBlue Team A Project of DanceBlue - Golden Matrix Fund - Dance Teams
DanceBlue is a year long fundraising effort, culminating in a 24-hour no sitting, no sleeping dance marathon right in the heart of the University of Kentucky campus. All efforts support the DanceBlue Kentucky Children's Hospital Hematology/Oncology Clinic through the Golden Matrix Fund, as well as the Markey Cancer Center.
This year, Sigma Alpha has a goal of raising $5,000 for the 2017 DanceBlue Marathon. Please help us reach our fundraising goal by making a gift to our team!
Through 11 years of DanceBlue, more than $9.8 million has been raised to support:
- The construction of a new hematology/oncology clinic at the Kentucky Children's Hospital that will expand the capacity of the clinic as well as provide a more convenient and comfortable experience for the families.
- The hiring of vital staff in the clinic such as a Child Life Specialist who provides encouragement and distraction to help the child emotionally handle their diagnosis and the treatments.
- A school intervention specialist has been brought on as an advocate for the patients within schools to ensure they do not fall behind in classes as a result of their treatments.
- Patient support programs such as the "Beads of Courage" program that each child receives after cancer treatments.
Please support the DanceBlue-Golden Matrix Fund by making a gift to the Sigma Alpha Team today!
