On Sunday, September 21, D4D held its 7th Annual Pancake Breakfast. It was such a successful event! We made hundreds of pancakes and raised about $2400. Thank you to all who came out to support!

Keep the fundraising momentum alive and come run/walk in our Minnie 5K held right on campus. This year's Minnie 5K is on Saturday, October 25 starting at 10:00am. Registration and packet pickup begins at 8:45am outside of the front entrance of the RecPlex (the intersection of Kiefaber and Evanston). For a small fee of $20, you'll receive a t-shirt, drawstring bag, the most fun run you can have at UD, bananas and bagels after the race, and, most importantly, the pleasure of knowing that you helped a child go to Disney World! :) To sign-up come to our table hours the week of the race, signup the day of on site, or click on this link: Hope to see you all there! P.S. Costumes are encouraged!

Naomi and her sister during her wish trip

2013-2014 Recap

This past school year Distance 4 Dreams accomplished a lot. Most importantly, we sponsored Naomi's trip down to Give Kids the World Village. She had a great time meeting all of the characters, especially the Disney princesses. As an organization, we were so honored to be able to grant her wish. Thanks to everyone who helped make her wish come true!

D4D visits Give Kids the World Village
Along with Naomi's wish granting, some members made their own wishes come true by completing their first half or full marathon in Disney World! We sent around 50 members down to run in the races this past year. The trip was a blast, as always.


D4D intramurals hit a sweet spot this year. We won 5 championships! The sports we won were 4x4 flag football twice, preseason basketball, floor hockey, and dodgeball. We're always looking for new participants, so come out and join the fun.

In addition to our Minnie 5k and Pancake Breakfast fundraisers, we added our first ever spring semester fundraiser: a Distance 4 Dreams Euchre Tournament. It was a ton of fun, and we even taught some beginners how to play. Next year we cannot wait to increase the amount of participants who attend, so grab all of your friends to come out and play!
