This upcoming week is one of DanceBlue’s favorite weeks of the year: Fall Blitz Week! Starting Monday, September 28, Fall Blitz Week is a week full of socially-distant tabling, social media events, and a giveaway that lead up to the closing of team registration for DanceBlue 2021 on Friday, October 2 at 5 p.m. Each day has a different theme and activities, and anyone is welcome to participate. Take a look at what we have in store for the week and look out for more information on our social media on Sunday, September 27!

Monday, September 28: Memory Monday

Everyone involved in DanceBlue has a favorite memory, whether it’s vivacious committee meetings or a funny story from the marathon. On Memory Monday, we will be tabling socially-distant outside of Mining & Minerals from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. We will also be encouraging all DanceBlue supporters to share their memories on social media for a chance to win DanceBlue merchandise using the hashtag #DBlitzWeek and tagging us on Instagram @uk_danceblue. Each use of the hashtag is an entry into the giveaway, and a winner will be randomly selected on Friday, October 2.

Tuesday, September 29: Team Tuesday

Team Tuesday is a social media day full of supporting past and present teams of DanceBlue! We will be posting some exciting graphics that spotlight different aspects of team involvement during DanceBlue. Anyone is welcome to participate in these challenges or post a picture of their team! Be sure to use #DBlitzWeek and tag us @uk_danceblue on Instagram!

Wednesday, September 30: One Wednesday We Wear Ribbons

On Wednesday, we are encouraging you to show us how you wear your ribbons! Post a picture on your social media wearing your DanceBlue ribbon during the day and tag us @uk_danceblue on Instagram using #DBlitzWeek! Of course, if you’re out and about, practice social distancing. Don’t have a ribbon? Stop by Mining & Minerals from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to pick one up.

Thursday, October 1: Thoughtful Thursday

While everything we do as an organization is For The Kids, Thoughtful Thursday is all about the impact that DanceBlue has had on both families and its participants. We will be hearing stories from DanceBlue Clinic employees and we are encouraging supporters to post their “I DanceBlue  Because…” story on Instagram. Anyone is welcome to participate, so be sure to tag us at @uk_danceblue and use #DBlitzWeek.

Friday, October 2: Film It Friday

On our last day of Blitz Week, we’re sending messages directly to the kids for Film It Friday. Because of COVID-19 regulations, we have restructured our annual clinic card writing to take place in the form of an event designed to give the kids the same support and encouragement in a  safe way. On Friday, we will be set up at Mining & Minerals from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to encourage DanceBlue participants to film a (masked) message to the kids. If you cannot make it to campus to film your message, you are encouraged to film your message yourself and send it to [email protected] to be passed along to the kids!  Registration closes at 5 p.m., so make sure to register your team before then! Click here and sign in to your account on BBNvolved to register.

Blitz Week is a chance to really experience the love that this campus has for DanceBlue and the kids. Whether you have never heard of DanceBlue before or you are a senior on Committee, Blitz Week is for you! Come to the tabling events, participate in the social media days, and learn about or show the community your passion for DanceBlue. As always, we ask that you practice social distancing  guidelines during Blitz Week for the kids! We hope to see you soon!
