Project Going Forward
It takes teamwork to make the dream work.
At Dream On 3, we believe in looking towards the future and, in that spirit, we wanted to share some exciting plans. With nearly 17 million children in the US suffering from intellectual and developmental disabilities, chronic illness, or life-altering conditions, the demand for our services far exceeds our current geographic reach. Consequently, in 2016, through a strategic initiative called Project Going Forward, DO3 will expand operations into its first affiliate location: Atlanta, GA!
Children suffering from terminal, chronic, and developmental conditions struggle to participate in and enjoy sports of any kind, even when they have a true love of the game. With the new Atlanta affiliate, Dream On 3 will reach more of these children, helping to restore hope and joy by creating personal experiences with a favorite athlete, sporting event, or sports team. Leaning heavily on the staff and board leadership, business model, and experience of the national headquarters in Charlotte, DO3 Atlanta will serve more children in need while also protecting the culture and core values that the organization was founded on. It is our DREAM that the Atlanta expansion will be a model for future affiliate locations throughout the country.
Dream On 3’s ability to advance our mission and provide hope and encouragement for more deserving children is only possible with expanded support. If it is of interest, we would greatly appreciate the opportunity to share more about Project Going Forward with you. We invite you to join the Dream On 3 “huddle” and help us make the impossible possible for our future Dream Kids in the Atlanta region and beyond.

Meet our Atlanta Executive Director, Bryan McDowell!
Having spent the last twenty years working in the non profit, sports marketing and event management industry, Bryan is excited to have all of his passions and experience combined as he joins Dream On 3! Bryan has lived in Atlanta for nearly 15 years. However, he grew up in North Carolina near the Outer Banks and attended the University of North Carolina – so he still calls the Tarheel state “home.” Bryan spends most of his free time keeping up with his two wonderful children Laney (11) and William (8), coaching them in basketball and soccer while also enjoying a round of golf when he can squeeze it in.
