DANCEMAROON is Bourbon County’s version of UK’s Dance Blue fundraising event for pediatric oncology. The event is scheduled for Friday, February 2nd from 4:00 to 10:00 PM at the high school. In order to participate, students have to raise a minimum of $20. Michelle Patrick (BCHS) and Sue Ellen Ballard (BCMS) are the contacts for this event.
This six-hour dance marathon is considered a “mini” version of UK’s DanceBlue. DanceBlue is a 24-hour dance marathon fundraiser for the Golden Matrix Fund which was setup to benefit those treated at the DanceBlue Pediatric Oncology and Hematology Clinic at Kentucky Children’s Hospital.
Our dancers will be made up of BCHS and BCMS students and staff, as well as staff from our preschool and elementary schools. Students will need to submit at least $20, two weeks before the marathon (by January 18, 2018). Donation forms and money can be turned in to the student’s group advisor/team leader or to Mrs. Patrick at BCHS or Mrs. Ballard at BCMS. Checks for dancer fees can be made to UK DanceBlue (Corporate Sponsor/Partners who are helping with the event costs may make checks payable to BCHS)
