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 $275,000. 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.

Through our Kaye's Kids Special Times program, we were able to surprise Anastasia with a new bed and a comforter in her favorite color, yellow. We hope this new bed will bring her comfort at night.

Thank you to Mark and Meghan at 95.1 WAPE - Jacksonville's #1 Hit Music Station for helping us surprise her! Be sure to tune in this week and next week to the Big Ape Morning Show at 7am and 9am for all the surprises.16-year-old Anastasia was diagnosed with Sickle Cell Anemia shortly after birth. Sickle Cell Anemia creates a blockage in blood flow and causes intense pain. Anastasia has been hospitalized quite frequently due to her pain crisis. She was also diagnosed with death of bone tissue which resulted in a total hip replacement in May. During her recent hospitalization, Anastasia expressed the need for a new bed. This morning on the Big Ape Morning Mess, Mark Kaye and Meghan surprised Anastasia with a brand new bed including a new comforter and sheet set in her favorite color, yellow. ☀️ We hope the new bed will bring Anastasia comfort and peace during her continued recovery. Merry Christmas in July, Anastasia! 🎅🏻🎄❤️

Kaye's Kids is a special times program of Dreams Come True of Jacksonville, Inc. Listen all week long to 95.1 WAPE Jacksonville's #1 Hit Music Station to hear us surprise more Dreamers like Anastasia! ❤️
