DanceBlue is one of the greatest traditions at the University of Kentucky and one of the fastest growing philanthropies in the Southeastern Conference. Join us at Memorial Coliseum on February 17 – 18 as we celebrate our 13th year dancing For The Kids.
DanceBlue started with a young boy named Jarrett, who was enthusiastic and intelligent.
Jarrett was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma at a young age and passed away in 2002. After his passing, Jarret’s parents worked to keep his legacy alive.

Last Thursday, we celebrated the official 100-day countdown until the 2018 DanceBlue Marathon! (If you missed the announcement, hundreds of students will start the 24-hour no-sitting, no-sleeping dance marathon of Feb. 17 at 8 p.m.!)
Surrounded by a sea of dancers, listening to story after story from patient after patient of their journeys with cancer, legs weak, eyelids heavy, I stood and wept after more than 20 hours of DanceBlue
