This is the 4th year our team the Magical Mermaid will be participating in the Dreams Come True Walk Run and Roll 5K & 1 Mile Fun Run. The Dreams Come True organization is dear to our hearts!

It’s been 4 incredible years! Our Dreamer Reilani was diagnosed with Leukemia in 2018 and that didn’t stop her from learning & growing. While her journey with this life-threatening illness repeatedly attempted to take her childhood…

Today, Reilani’s DISNEY DREAM came TRUE thanks to DCT and donors like you! She is a 1st grader participating in dance classes and swimming lessons after school. She just celebrated her 7th birthday. She only has bi-monthly visits at Nemours. Best of all, Reilani is 1 year CANCER-FREE!

Our brave girl has come a long way. Reilani’s sass, spirit and smile continues to sparkle. She is our “light” and a constant reminder of how precious life is.

Reilani truly is Magical!

The Dreams Come True Organization gives local families with children battling life-threatening illnesses, like Reilani, the gift of compassion, hope and love. They REALLY make Dreams Come True with your help. These BRAVE DREAMERS DESERVE IT!

Please join us in supporting DCT families & dreamers!
