FNB Joburg 10K CITYRUN believes in making a community impact. To that end, we’ve partnered with the Reach For A Dream Foundation and ask all runners to consider a donation towards this inspirational organization.
For 28 years the Reach For A Dream Foundation has been able to fulfill the dreams of life-threatened children. No dream is too big or small. Reach For A Dream has always sought to inspire hope, courage and strength in the lives of children who need it most.
As each life-threatened child fights for their life, the Reach For A Dream foundation creates magical dreams to alleviate the psychosocial burden of a life-threatening illness. Below are some stories from our dreamers.
“Hennie is 5 years old and has Medullo Blastoma. She loves nature and she wants to be a farmer.”
“Athikule is a quiet young girl with big dreams. Diagnosed with Leukemia at 3 years old her dream is to be a ballerina.”
“Morati is a quiet young girl who loves to play. Diagnosed with Tetrology of Fallot at age 7 her dream is to have a life size toy house. She dreams of having friends come over and play with her in her house.”
When a child is diagnosed with a life-threating illness like cancer, renal failure, or a blood disorder their whole life is turned upside down. After a diagnosis there are many financial, emotional and spiritual burdens that are placed on a child and their family. Having a terminal illness robs many children of their childhood as their illness usually requires difficult, painful and long treatments. Despite these stressful treatments, each child still lives for the present moment. RFAD creates magical dreams that inspire each child to have hope and courage when fighting for their life.
