The Glow Cats 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.

What sets our team apart from the others is how one of our team members has had personal experience with what it is like having pediatric cancer. Our team captain, Emily Dawson, was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer 3 years ago and was treated here at the DanceBlue Hematology/Oncology clinic. During treatments, she got to experience DanceBlue firsthand and all that they do for the kids! Now as a freshman at the University of Kentucky, she will be able to participate in DanceBlue as a student, and not a patient.
This year, The Glow Cats have a goal of raising $6,500 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 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 Glow Cats Team today!
