Owensboro Man Taking Orders for St. Jude Inspired Cookbook

Local Schools To Host UK DanceBlue Marathons

The University of Kentucky's DanceBlue marathons have raised over $8 million dollars for pediatric cancer research over the last nine years. Four Daviess County (Ky) Public Schools will be joining them in their own local versions of DanceBlue in the fight against childhood cancer this year!

There can be "no sleeping, no sitting", so throughout the event, students will be participating in dancing, playing games and dedicating their time and efforts to support children and families served by DanceBlue Clinic. Each hour features a different theme for music. Students will also have the opportunity to write messages of encouragement and make a tie-blanket to send to children at the hospital.
