What is raiseRED?

RaiseRED is The University of Louisvilleā€™s largest student-run philanthropic organization, and its efforts benefit the UofL Department of Pediatric Oncology and Hematology. In the past five years, we have raised over 2.3 million dollars for research and patient needs. In addition to financial support, raiseRED volunteers with our Cardinal Crew program, inviting patients and families to partner up with a college student for fun events, parties, and mentorship. All clinic patients, both currently experiencing disease and survivors, are welcome to join events like a Kid Prom, a rocket launching party, a gingerbread house building contest, and more!


Every February, raiseRED hosts a nationally recognized 18-hour dance marathon that celebrates the children & families we support. With over 1,000 students involved each year, we aim to be a dynamic, inclusive, and impactful entity in our city. We welcome you to join in our efforts by donating, attending our events leading up to the marathon, volunteering or registering to participate - FOR THE KIDS!
