UGR3DAY Underground Railroad Experiences Inc. was established in 2019 through a 52 mile walk on the Underground Railroad that was done in celebration of “Conductor Dee’s” birthday. Along with 11 friends, they walked through Central Delaware, Northern Delaware and Kennett Square, PA. Dionne Patterson, a.k.a. “Conductor Dee” knew from the beginning that she wanted it to be more than a walk. Her vision was to have it be an experience, and an experience it was. That walk, often regarded as life changing by its participants, was the start of UGR3DAY.
