Finding Cures. Providing Support. Saving Lives… One Dancer at a Time.
RaiseRED is a yearlong fundraising effort culminating in an 18-hour dance marathon. We are the largest student-run organization at the University of Louisville with over 1000 students raising money every year!. We work to raise awareness and funding for the children, families, and doctors fighting pediatric cancer and blood disease at the UofL hospital. In the last two years 2,000+ students have raised over ONE MILLION DOLLARS! This year we are pushing to raise even more for the kids! 50% of the donations to raiseRED directly benefit the research of Dr. William Tse and Dr. Ashok Raj, both members of the Department of Pediatric Oncology and Hematology at UofL. The other 50% goes to the UofL Clinic for Pediatric Oncology and Hematology to provide services and needs for the children and their families going through treatment. In years past, raiseRED funding created a position for a much-needed social worker in the clinic, helped support Dr. Raj and Dr. Tse's research initiatives, and supported hundreds of children fighting terrible diseases.
With your generous donations during Raise Some L, raiseRED has the possibility to help both the children and the clinic in so many ways. We could not do this without your support, thank you all so much!
