Dreams Come True for Children with Life-Threatening Illnesses in Jacksonville

Our Mission to Make Dreams Come True for Sick Children

What is Dreams Come True of Jacksonville?

Dreams Come True is the First Coast’s only locally-based, wish granting organization dedicated to using the power of a dream to bring hope and joy to EVERY First Coast child battling a life-threatening illness. Since 1984, we have fulfilled the dreams of more than 3,800 children. No child is ever denied a dream and no child is ever placed on a waiting list. We are proud to say that, unless otherwise designated, 100% of all donations go directly toward dream fulfillment.

Dreams Come True 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run Raised More Than $350,000

The annual Dreams Come True 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run was a huge success. Thank you for your support and helping us in surpassing our goals. We raised over $350,000 including a generous $100,000 matching grant from the Delores Barr Weaver Fund at The Community Foundation for Northeast Florida. We had over 1,400 runners and walkers registered for our two races, and had hundreds of people in attendance to cheer and volunteer, including princesses and super heroes. Because of your support, we will be able to continue to grant dreams to every qualified child and never have a waiting list.

 

SAVE THE DATE – We are already planning the 2019 Dreams Come True 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run for Saturday, September 28, 2019 the Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville.
