Join Children’s Defense Fund for their Beat the Odds Celebration on May 13! CDF-MN is planning an exciting virtual celebration full of joy and earned exuberance. The live event will be broadcast online so you can participate from home – or where-ever you may be. Registration is free (must be registered to receive the link to join the virtual event).
The CDF Beat the Odds scholarship and leadership development program recognizes extraordinary high school students who have overcome tremendous adversity in life to achieve academic excellence, demonstrate leadership in their communities, and continue their education. Since 1993, CDF-MN has awarded more than 300 scholarships to outstanding youth in the Twin Cities metropolitan area.
CDF-MN’s annual Beat the Odds celebration also helps raise awareness about the significant challenges facing Minnesota’s children and the need for continued investment and advocacy. This year, given the many-layered challenges facing our communities, CDF-MN’s advocacy for children is more important than ever and their Beat the Odds honorees are especially deserving of recognition. At the virtual celebration, you will be inspired to hear from CDF-MN’s young people who are leading the way and showing us all that: Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now!
