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 $275,000.

Meet Ji'Mya! Twelve-year-old Mya has lived with Sickle Cell Anemia her entire life. Despite being hospitalized frequently for pain crisis, Ji'Mya is a star student and a competitive cheerleader. She LOVES sushi, Hello Kitty and her big brothers.

What is Sickle Cell Anemia? Sickle cell disease is a condition in which red blood cells are not shaped as they should be. Red blood cells usually look like round discs. But in sickle cell disease, they're shaped like crescent moons, or an old farm tool known as a sickle.

These sickle shaped cells get stuck together easily, and block off small blood vessels. When blood can't get to where it should, it can lead to pain and organ damage.

"Dreams Come True has been a wonderful blessing to us. From the concerts and shows, to the lovely relationships they have helped us build. It is an amazing organization that has allowed Ji’Mya to experience a side of life they she may have never experienced. We love and appreciate all the “angels” that we have been blessed with from Dreams Come True"- Ji'Mya's Mom
