Who do we serve?

Dream candidates must be between the ages of 5-21 years old and passionate about sports. Read more about how children are referred to us.

Why should I give?

Children with disabilities and chronic illnesses have aspirations and dreams like any other kids. Unfortunately, their illness or disability can create barriers and challenges that make it difficult for them to live a normal life or do the things that other kids can do.

  • Your donation creates memories that our Dream Kids and their families will remember for the rest of their lives.
