EVENT: Run Long Beach 2013

Kaitlyn Briggs


I have the opportunity to run the Long Beach Half-Marathon on October 13 with Dream Street Foundation. Running a half-marathon has always been a dream of mine. After tearing my ACL I saw that dream slip away. But 2013 is the year. And I have the opportunity to run with a wonderful organization called Dream Street Foundation.

Dream Street provides camping programs for children with chronic and life threatening illnesses. Funded by the Dream Street Foundation, children with cancer, blood disorders and other serious diseases are given the opportunity to enjoy activities they would normally be restricted from due to their illness. For those children, who require medicine daily or several times a day, the usual sleep-away camp is not sufficiently sophisticated to handle their medical needs. At Dream Street, volunteer counselors, as well as a complete medical staff are on hand to spend endless hours with any child, who needs special help and love. Dream Street operates summer camps in Arizona, Arkansas, California, Mississippi and New Jersey. All projects are run by volunteer staff with a long history of experience and expertise in their chosen field of work with sick children. Camping sessions are FREE OF CHARGE to those attending. Dream Street brings the dream of normal childhood activities to reality for these children. It is an environment in which no child sits on the sidelines or has to worry about being different. Dream Street is completely volunteer operated, including counselors, medical staff and administration. Dream Street does not fund salaries, only happy summers for children in need. Dream Street is a public non-profit corporation.
