Previous DPAF Philanthropic Activities

June 2018 5K Charitable Run/Walk Honoring the Hidradenitis Suppurativa Foundation

This year the annual charitable run will be held in Seattle in honor of the Hidradenitis Suppurativa Foundation! Registration will open at the beginning of the conference. Attendees can register to run, walk, or sleep in, and each registrant will receive a truly unique commemorative t-shirt and medal for participating. Although attendees can register on-site, anyone can register and participate from anywhere in the country online beginning on June 28th. Virtual participants will receive their commemorative items by mail, and are encouraged to submit photos of them running for a cause in their town for our run recap. This is a great opportunity to run walk (or sleep-in) for a cause, so be sure to pack your running shoes (or pajamas!).  Check back here for updates on time and location.

Check back here June 28th when registration opens!
