Students from the Owensboro area raised well over $20,000 a couple of weeks ago at the annual DanceBlue fund raiser. The mini-marathon took place at Apollo High for 6 hours, where 300-plus students from Apollo, Burns Middle, College View, UK, and the Alpha Omicron Pi sorority from KWC danced and played games. The only rule was no sitting; participants must stand and be active the entire time out of respect for children who are fighting pediatric cancer. All funds raised through the efforts of the participants go to the DanceBlue KCH (Kentucky Children’s Hospital) Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Clinic at the University of Kentucky. When it was all said and done, the students surpassed their goal, raising $23,736.59.
