BENEFITING: DREAM STREET FOUNDATION
Hello friends, family, and strangers. In October of 2016 I ran my first marathon, 26.2 miles of riding the struggle bus, but since then I ran the Huntington Beach Marathon, the Los Angeles Marathon, and will be running the Orange County Marathon on May 7th, 2017 with more races to come. This is going to be my year of fundraising for the Dream Street Foundation by pushing myself past my mental limits in the hopes that you'll see what I'm doing and think "wow, this guy is crazy, this organization must be really important to him!" and hopefully throw in a few dollars or even get involved with the Dream Street Foundation. For those of you who do not know, the Dream Street Foundation provides a summer camp program to children suffering from chronic, life threatening, and terminal illnesses. This summer will be my 11th summer volunteering as a counselor with this fantastic organization and it is without a doubt the greatest thing I do. I am constantly aware of the fact that the foundation is only able to keep on changing lives through donations by viewers like you, so I implore you, please donate what you can, and if you aren't in a position to be giving away much needed grocery money, feel free to reach out to me about what you can do with your time to help the Dream Street Foundation. www.dreamstreetfoundation.org
DREAM STREET FOUNDATION wrote -
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 VOLUNTEER 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. 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 does not fund salaries, only happy summers for children in need.
Dream Street is a public non-profit corporation.
