Upcoming Community Fundraising Events for Norton Children’s

We are grateful to the many community groups and individuals who host fundraisers to support the mission of Norton Children’s.

Mark your calendars and make a difference by participating in or donating to these spring events:

Dance Big Red

March 20, 2020
Western Kentucky University
Raymond B. Preston Health & Activities Center
Bowling Green, Kentucky

The need for social distancing did not deter Western Kentucky University students and others from dancing to raise funds for Norton Children’s Hospital. They took their moves digital and hosted a virtual event on March 20. Thanks to your support, the sixth annual Dance Big Red student-led fundraising event raised more than $34,500. When added to their past support, Dance Big Red has raised more than $280,000 for Norton Children’s Hospital!
