Yesterday, students at Apollo High School hosted the annual Dance Blue Marathon to raise money for Pediatric Cancer Research.  The day was a complete success and they raised thousands!

DanceBlue is a 24 hour no sitting, no sleeping dance marathon that was started at the University of Kentucky that benefits the Golden Matrix Fund which works to support cancer research at the Markey Cancer Center and social support at DanceBlue Kentucky Children’s Hospital Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Clinic.
