Behind the Blue

Some stories require a little more – a little more discussion, more context, more depth and breadth. That’s the idea behind “Behind the Blue” – a weekly podcast created by UK Public Relations and Marketing. It is designed to explore through probing interviews the in-depth the stories that make UK the university for Kentucky and that have impact across the institution, the Commonwealth and, in some cases, the world.

LEXINGTON, Ky. (February 24, 2022)DanceBlue is a University of Kentucky student-run organization that fundraises year-round and culminates in a 24-hour no sitting, no sleeping dance marathon.

The money raised through DanceBlue is donated to the Golden Matrix Fund, established to support the kids of the DanceBlue Kentucky Children’s Hospital Hematology/Oncology Clinic both today and well into the future through an endowment. The Golden Matrix Fund was created to benefit the clinic’s patients and families, by providing care and support for the kids through giving them and their families comfort.

DanceBlue funds also support the year-long fundraising engine and operations that underpin the mission, as well as providing funds to support research at the UK Markey Cancer Center. Through more than 15 years of DanceBlue, more than $18 million has been raised to support this cause.

On this episode of Behind the Blue, DanceBlue Overall Chair Nick Joseph and Marketing Chair Jennifer Derk talk about their personal experiences with DanceBlue, the impact they see the event has on the UK community, and more.
