RaiseRED is an 18-hour dance marathon and the largest student-run philanthropic organization at the University of Louisville. The event has a year-round focus that raises awareness and funding for the children, families, and doctors fighting pediatric cancer and blood disease at UofL. Last year, more than 1,000 students raised over $601,000! We are aiming even higher in 2019 and working to raise even more! 100% of donations to raiseRED directly benefit the work of Dr. Ashok B. Raj, Chair of the Department of Pediatric Oncology and Hematology at UofL. In years past, raiseRED funding has created a position for a much-needed social worker in the clinic, helped support Dr. Raj’s research initiatives, and directly benefited patient needs.
