The Story

EVENT DATE: Sep 28, 2014

DEADLINE TO GIVE: Sep 26, 2014

On Sunday, September 28th, 2014 CDF will be hosting its 3rd Annual 5K walk/run for Camp Discovery.  We are very excited for this event and hope you’ll join us! 

 

Located in the center of the largest park in Dakota County, the Jensen Lake Trailhead hosts a large, shaded picnic area and provides access to miles of wooded hiking trails, one of which we've chosen for our 5K course.  Participants are sure to be offered picturesque views of the park's beautiful fall scenery, and will enjoy a great event for a wonderful cause! 

 

Please see below to learn more about the organizations involved, donation and registration information, and to meet the teams! 

 

Introduction to CDF and Camp Discovery

CDF is a 501.3c, non-profit organization that was created in 2012. The mission of CDF is to promote good health for citizens of the state of Minnesota through scholarships, articles, educational presentations, online materials and books. We recently published a book about protecting the skin in the sun, titled SunAWARE. In an effort to further support our mission, CDF will be hosting a 5K run/walk at Lebanon Hills Regional Park in Eagan, MN, on September 28th, 2014. Proceeds from this event will be used to benefit Camp Discovery.

Formed in 1993, Camp Discovery offers a summer camping experience unlike any other. Every year, the American Academy of Dermatology sponsors a week of fishing, boating, swimming, water skiing, arts and crafts, and just plain fun. Under the expert care of dermatologists and nurses, Camp Discovery offers campers the opportunity to spend a week among other young people who have similar skin conditions. Many of the counselors have serious skin conditions as well, and can provide support and advice to campers. Fun, friendship, and independence are on the top of everyone's agenda, and everyone shares in the discovery of what it's like to be included. There is no fee for camp.  Full scholarships, including transportation, are provided by the American Academy of Dermatology through generous donations. 

Since Camp Discovery's inception, the number of campers has continually increased.  The Academy is proud to offer this experience to over 350 children each year.
