Join us for the 2023 PeDRA Dash for Discovery! This event will give 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 or 1-mile fun run/walk. So, lace up your shoes and put on some miles to help accelerate research to improve the lives of children with dermatologic conditions and diseases.
The 2023 PeDRA Dash for Discovery will be a hybrid event, giving runners and walkers the ability to dash anywhere, anytime between Friday, November 3 and Sunday, November 12, 2023. For anyone attending the 2023 PeDRA Annual Conference you’ll have the chance to meet up with other runners and walkers at the conference to dash on the streets of Atlanta. Make the 2023 Dash 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. You’ll have the chance to join teams and set fundraising goals to make the Dash, even more fun and meaningful.
Help PeDRA reach the fundraising goal of $7,500 by fundraising $100 or more, in support of your run or walk and earn some cool PeDRA swag!
PeDRA is excited to give runners and walkers the opportunity (totally optional!) to use the 2023 PeDRA Dash for Discovery to raise funds in support of pediatric dermatology research. Please consider creating a team to help encourage each other and inspire competition between the teams.
Should you choose to raise funds to help sustain research, check out the rewards you can earn as an individual fundraiser:
- Raise $100 and earn a PeDRA Athletic Belt
- Raise $250 and earn a PeDRA Dash for Discovery Athletic Baseball Hat, along with the athletic belt.
