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.
