Ky. Voices: DanceBlue story worth front page

On Feb. 23, more than a thousand people erupted into an ovation of cheers and joyful tears as more than 800 exhausted students — following a 24-hour, no-sitting, no-sleeping dance marathon — lifted 12 pieces of white poster board inscribed with the total amount raised over the past year for the DanceBlue Kentucky Children's Hospital Pediatric Hematology Oncology Clinic. More than $1.1 million raised for the kids — making it one of the largest student-led philanthropy efforts in the country.
