Emma Gabbard 2020
My name is Emma Gabbard and this year I have the privilege of being on the executive board this year for raiseRED! I am one of the mini-dance marathon coordinators working with local schools to help spread awareness and raise funding for pediatric cancer and blood diseases in the greater Louisville area. If you know me you know that this cause and the people effected by it is something that I'm extremely passionate about. This year I have set out to raise $1,190 for the expected 1,190 children who will unfortunately pass away from pediatric cancer this year. Thank you so much for visiting my page, your support means so much to me and I would not be able to do this without you!!
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, nearly 1,000 students raised over $682,000! We are aiming even higher in 2020 and working to raise even more! 100% of donations to raiseRED directly benefit the work of Dr. Ashok B. Raj, Chair of the Division of Pediatric Oncology and Hematology at UofL. In years past, raiseRED funding has supported social work services, helped research initiatives, and directly benefited patient needs.
