UK DanceBlue 2021 fundraising deadline approaching

LEXINGTON, Ky. (UK Public Affairs) — University of Kentucky DanceBlue’s 2021 fundraising deadline is 5 p.m. Friday, March 19.

Fundraising Chair Lizzie Rupp explains why this deadline is crucial to the 2021 virtual marathon. “The fundraising deadline is very important in determining who gets to participate in DanceBlue each year,” she said. “Dancer spots are awarded to teams based on a combination of fundraising and spirit points; the deadline gives us a ‘cut-off’ so that we can determine how many dancers each team can have participate in the virtual marathon. The number of dancers is also important so that we can place people in morale groups for fun activities and games throughout the marathon!”
