Support Kappa Kappa Psi's DanceBlue Team!
Kappa Kappa Psi 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 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, Kappa Kappa Psi Theta Epsilon has a goal of raising $1,500 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 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
We hope you consider making a gift to the Golden Matrix Fund through the Kappa Kappa Psi team today!
