Again this year UK Libraries provided laptop computers for more than 800 student dancers at DanceBlue, a student-run philanthropic event at the University of Kentucky. The year-long fundraising effort involving thousands of UK student volunteers, culminates in a 24-hour no-sitting, no-sleeping dance marathon.
This year, for the first time in the events eight year history, DanceBlue raised more than $1 million. The laptops provided by UK Libraries allowed participants to connect with the outside world and share their experiences throughout the marathon.
Thanks to Kevin Campbell of UK Libraries Audio-Visual Services for providing laptop computers to DanceBlue participants once again.
