Make a Difference Only You Can Make!
We hope you will join us for the 8th Annual Dream Big Walk, a scenic 2 mile walk in a lake/park setting. The Dawn Brancheau Foundation is dedicated to improving the lives of children and animals in need, inspiring others to follow their dreams, and promoting the importance of community service.
Please join us from 1:30-3:00 pm to interact with animals from the Columbus Zoo and to help with our on-site community service projects while registration is taking place. We will be making blankets and filling backpacks to send to the children of Kenya serviced by Matanya's Hope, creating Cards from the Heart for local senior citizens, assembling Personal Care Bags for the Chicago homeless serviced by Lost And Found Ministry, and assembling Doggie Adoption Bags for 4 Paw Sake Canine Rescue. The Dream Big Walk program will begin at 3:00 with welcoming remarks. After we walk, we will celebrate with a picnic dinner.
All participants are also invited to help us "Pack the Pick-Ups" by donating new and gently-used backpacks that will be distributed to the children serviced by Matanya's Hope.
We are happy to announce that this year's event proceeds will benefit The Boys and Girls Club of Cedar Lake, South Lake Sailing School, Cedar Lake Ministries, The Lake County Fairgrounds, Mercy Home for Boys and Girls, Matanya's Hope, Horizons for Youth, Sojourner Truth House, South Suburban Family Shelter, Savior Children Foundation, All God's Children, Lost and Found Ministry, Nazareth Home, South Suburban Humane Society, 4 Paw Sake Canine Rescue, and The Dream Big Scholarship at Andrean High School.
Thanks for helping us to make our world just a little bit brighter!
