Frequently Asked Questions
FTK stands for “For The Kids,” and it is the motto that we strive to live by each day.
DanceBlue is one of the largest traditions at the University of Kentucky and one of the fastest growing student-run philanthropy events in the United States. DanceBlue is an opportunity to do something bigger than yourself, to rally behind the bravest children, and to take a stand in the battle against pediatric cancer.
First you will create a team and determine a responsible team captain who will register your team on danceblue.org (registration for the 2018 marathon is open August 23rd to September 29th). Then throughout the year meet fundraising goals, earn spirit points by attending various DanceBlue events, then rock out on the dance floor with 1,000 of the coolest people. All FTK!
We encourage you to apply for committee! Committee applications go live about a month after the marathon. Committee consists of five different committees, coordinators, and chairs. Also keep your eye out for various DanceBlue events that occur throughout the year, such as the DanceBlue 5K in the Fall.
