Why are we "running for dreams?" It is our mission to teach all of the youth we serve, especially our teens, to learn to dream and focus on the means of reaching that dream. Many of the children we server have faced such extreme obstacles in life that they have gone into a survival mode and just "get by." They never think that they can be something; they believe that is reserved for others not foster kids. We say, "No!" it is their time to shine and we are the ones that are going to lead them to that end. The proceeds of this event will go to our summer camp, which is designed to motivate, inspire and train our teens to make a new life for themselves and to stop the cycle of abuse.
Run For Dreams will be a trail run through the beautiful Lake Georgetown area. Walkers/Runners should be prepared for rough terrain and enviromental elements. It will not be feasible to participate with strollers or bikes.
