Sponsor Information

Dreams Come True 5K Sponsorship

Each day, we strive to ensure that all First Coast children battling life-threatening illnesses are brought joy and hope through the power of a dream. Our ability to fulfill those dreams is only possible with the support of our community. Through the Dreams Come True 5K, sponsors can help us in reach and exceed our goal of raising $200,000. We hope you will join us in growing this event and ensuring that no child is denied a dream, or placed on a waiting list because of a lack of funding. Please take a moment to review our sponsorship packet, which includes a special message from our 2018 DCT5K Corporate Chair, Linda Sherrer, President and CEO for Berkshire Hathaway Home Services North Florida Realty.

We are almost there! September 29 is around the corner and King can't wait to greet all our participants.

Dreams Come True of Jacksonville, Inc.
Will you be joining us at the Dreams Come True 5K on September 29? King, and several of our run ambassadors, will be at the Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville to welcome all our participants. King, was born early at 26 weeks and just 1 lb 14 oz. King was diagnosed with cerebral palsy and hospitalized for two months before going home. King could not sit up; did not crawl until the age of one, and did not walk until he was four. With all of this on his plate, he fought through and is now able to do many activities he could not do at first. King loves people and he's an inspiration to plenty. Hear more from King and his family in video below.
