Join us as we raise support for the DanceBlue-Golden Matrix Fund

Sigma Pi 2018 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 at Memorial Coliseum. All efforts support the DanceBlue Kentucky Children's Hospital Hematology/Oncology Clinic through the Golden Matrix Fund, as well as providing funds for research to the University of Kentucky's Markey Cancer Center.

The Golden Matrix Fund was created in order to benefit the DanceBlue KCH Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Clinic patients and families. Childhood cancer brings a tremendous strain to not only the patient physically and emotionally, but to the parents and families financially and emotionally. The goal of the Golden Matrix Fund is to provide care and support for the kids through giving them and their parents' comfort.

This year, Sigma Pi has a goal of raising $5,000 for the 2018 DanceBlue Marathon. Please help us reach our fundraising goal by making a gift to our team.

Through 12 years of DanceBlue, more than $11 million has been raised to support:

  • 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.
  • Hiring of vital staff in the clinic, such as a Child Life Specialist who provides encouragement and distraction to help the patients with emotionally handling their diagnosis and the treatments.
  • Hiring of a School Intervention Specialist who acts 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, like the "Beads of Courage" program, which each child receives after cancer treatment.

Please support the DanceBlue-Golden Matrix Fund by making a gift For The Kids to the Sigma Pi Team today! Your generous donation is immensely appreciated!
