A 5k Works Up an Appetite for Pancakes...

Our two biggest fundraisers are in the books!

On Saturday, September 18, D4D held it's 3rd annual Minnie 5k.  Over 100 runners and walkers lined up at ArtStreet for the start of "most fun you can run on campus."  Participants took a 3.1 mile journey through UD's campus to the beat of Disney tunes.  The day ended with awards being presented to the top 5 male and female runners as well as the Best Dressed individual and group (pictured to the right).  Congratulations to all of our finishers!  Results can be seen here.

Two short weeks later on Parents' Weekend, Dreamers spent their mornings flipping flapjacks at our annual Pancake Breakfast.  This year we had our biggest turnout ever!  Over 580 students, parents, and alumni enjoyed all-you-can-eat pancakes, sausage, and eggs made by Distance 4 Dreams members.  Highlights from morning include Mickey Mouse and Route 4 sign shaped pancakes and fresh-grilled sausage.        

Between both events, D4D raised a little over $3,000! 
Thanks for supporting Distance 4 Dreams and helping to make dreams come true!
