Almost $6,400 was raised Friday night as students from Barbourville and G.R. Hampton Elementary schools participated in the DanceBlue marathon at Barbourville Independent School. A total of $6,395.98 was raised during the event to help fund childhood cancer research.

DanceBlue is an entirely student-run organization (at the University of Kentucky) that fundraises year-round for the DanceBlue Hematology/Oncology Clinic and culminates in a 24-hour no sitting, no sleeping dance marathon, per its website.
