raiseRED is the only student run organization to support the clinical and medical research efforts at the University of Louisville as well as the largest student run organization at the University of Louisville. We focus year-round to support the children, families and doctors fighting pediatric cancer at UofL. The year of fundraising ends in an 18-hour Dance Marathon celebration, attended by hundreds of students. Last year, 1,000 students raised over $330,000.

For 2017, raiseRED will mark its fourth year supporting pediatric cancer research at U of L. raiseRED benefits the work of the university’s pediatric hematology & oncology program. Following eight years of successful dance marathons, raiseRED will take this well-known event loved by the campus community to even greater heights this year.

This year’s event will take place on February 24th and 25th 2017 from 6 p.m. until 12 p.m. the next day. The event will take place in the Student Activities Center Multipurpose Room located on the Belknap Campus at the University of Louisville.

To learn more about how you can participate or volunteer, email Ellie Romes at raisered1@gmail.com or Toree Parrish at toree.parrish@louisville.edu.

Together we will find a cure and restore hope that childhood cancer doesn’t have to be in our vocabulary.
