raiseRED's Impact

3 Million Dollars. 1000 Dancers. One Goal.

RaiseRED is the largest student-run organization at the University of Louisville. In the past seven years we have raised over 3 million dollars for the University of Louisville Department of Pediatric Oncology and Hematology. We fund research and contribute towards patient needs.


This year-long fundraising effort culminates in an 18-hour dance marathon every February to honor the children we fight for. Not only does our organization raise money for the hospital but we build relationships with the families. We have a unique program that matches children with our leadership and hosts events that let them just be kids.
