“All proceeds raised from the day go to Reach For A Dream, to help us combat the gravity of serious disease by assisting us in making children’s dreams come true. Whether it’s taking a plunge and swimming alongside dolphins, meeting an idol they admire, or getting that new doll house they’ve always dreamed of – these magical moments grant these youngsters and their families an invaluable respite from daily stressors associated with ill health. But more than anything else, what truly makes this experience special is how fulfilled dreams stir up much-needed courage and hope, helping these little ones believe that tomorrow is worth fighting for,” says Reach For A Dream.
