Camp St. Dorothy’s are the two weeks of hospital camps, a tuition-free program for campers with cancer, sickle-cell anemia or organ transplants in partnership with UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital in Oakland, California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco and Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford.

Woods-to-Waves raises funds to cover the cost of hospital camps and it’s great fun. Join us and a bunch of friends of St. Dorothy’s, and maybe even your dog as we walk, run or mountain-bike 2, 12.5 or 14.6 miles from St. Dorothy’s in the redwood hills of western Sonoma County down to Shell Beach on the salty Pacific Ocean. The path is beautiful, moderately strenuous for the first 2 miles, and it’s a great way to show your support St. Dorothy’s and hospital campers.
