Team Information

DCT5K Team Registration

Want to go a step beyond just registering for the DCT5K as an individual? Be sure to form a team and create your fundraising page during registration. Invite your friends, family and co-workers to help you reach your fundraising goal.
Forming a team and participating in the DCT5K is a great way to give back and help local children who are battling life-threatening illnesses. Regardless of the size of your team, you’ll feel good knowing that your group made a difference.

Team and individual registration pages will be available soon!

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 reach and exceed our goal of raising $500,000 for the 2020 DCT5K. 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.

Sponsorship information will be available soon; for more information on sponsoring the 2020 DCT5K, please email Jud Seymour, Special Projects Manager or call 904-296-3030.

Volunteer Information

  • Event setup & teardown
  • And much more!
