Hope From Harper 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 is Team Hope From Harper's 2nd year fundraising for DanceBlue and we could not be more excited! Hope From Harper is an organization that has been devoted to "supporting childhood cancer research, through raising funds and elevating awareness, in addition to looking for opportunities to improve the physical and emotional care received by childhood cancer patients" since 2014. To learn more about the Hope From Harper organization, visit http://www.hopefromharper.org. This year, team Hope From Harper has a goal of raising $1,800 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 Hope From Harper Team today!
