The inaugural PeDRA Dash for Discovery virtual fun run was October 8 – 10, 2021.
PeDRA’s first-ever fun run gave runners and walkers of all ages and abilities the chance to support research and collaboration in the field of pediatric dermatology with their choice of a 5K fun run/walk or a child-friendly 1-mile run/walk.
Thank you for your interest in participating in the 2021 PeDRA Dash for Discovery. Registration is now closed. Please send us an email with any questions.
As a virtual event, your Dash will take place any time between Friday, October 8 and Sunday, October 10 on a course of your own design. Make it what you want it to be, while knowing you’re running alongside a proud community pursuing the shared goal of ending the burden of childhood skin disease through research. Compete against your friends, build it into your weekend long run, walk to the coffee shop and back, or don spirited attire and march down the sidewalk. Anything goes!
The 2021 PeDRA Dash for Discovery is the perfect way to support PeDRA’s Mission to create, inspire, and sustain research to prevent, treat, and cure childhood skin disease and improve the lives of children with skin disease.
PeDRA is excited to give runners and walkers the opportunity (totally optional!) to use the 2021 PeDRA Dash for Discovery to raise funds in support of pediatric dermatology research.
