Sunshine Foundation is hosting its 19th annual RunWalkBark4Dreams 2-mile walk and 5K run virtually this year. Participate between Saturday, May 22 and Saturday, June 12 at your favorite location – around your neighborhood, a park or your living room. Take your dog for a walk and invite your family to join and/or support you.
There is a $10 entry fee per person, which benefits the Sunshine Foundation to make children’s dreams come true.
Rebekah, who has lumbar spinal bifida, is one of the dreamers the event will be sponsoring. Her dream is for a family trip to Lancaster, where she can attend a production at the Sight & Sound Theater, ride the train and visit other local attractions. Rebekah and her dog are ready to join the RunWalkBark4Dreams.
Corporate groups and organizations can walk or run as a team building activity. This year’s silver sponsors are Doc Bresler’s Cavity Busters, NRG, Philadelphia Insurance Companies and Stark & Stark Attorneys at Law.
The RunWalkBark4Dreams is a national event with a goal to have participants and supporters from all 50 states. Register or sponsor at sunshinefoundation.org/2021runwalkbark4dreams and post your pictures and videos on social media using the hashtags #RunWalkBark4Dreams, #50StateSunshineChallenge and #SunshineFoundation.
Sunshine Foundation is the original wish-granting organization in the United States, established in Philadelphia in 1976. It answers the dreams of children, ages 3-18, who have severe or profound physical/developmental/intellectual challenges or trauma from physical/sexual abuse, and whose families cannot fulfill their requests due to financial strain that the child’s illness may cause.
Sunshine Foundation has granted dreams of more than 41,000 children across the country. Visit sunshinefoundation.org for more information.
